.SH "NAME"
git-sh-i18n \- Git\(aqs i18n setup code for shell scripts
.SH "SYNOPSIS"

.SH "DESCRIPTION"
.sp
This is not a command the end user would want to run\&. Ever\&. This documentation is meant for people who are studying the Porcelain\-ish scripts and/or are writing new ones\&.
.sp
The \(aqgit sh\-i18n scriptlet is designed to be sourced (using \fB\&.\fR) by Git\(cqs porcelain programs implemented in shell script\&. It provides wrappers for the GNU \fBgettext\fR and \fBeval_gettext\fR functions accessible through the \fBgettext\&.sh\fR script, and provides pass\-through fallbacks on systems without GNU gettext\&.
.SH "FUNCTIONS"
.PP
gettext
.RS 4
Currently a dummy fall\-through function implemented as a wrapper around
\fBprintf(1)\fR\&. Will be replaced by a real gettext implementation in a later version\&.
.RE
.PP
eval_gettext
.RS 4
Currently a dummy fall\-through function implemented as a wrapper around
\fBprintf(1)\fR
with variables expanded by the
\fBgit-sh-i18n--envsubst\fR(1)
helper\&. Will be replaced by a real gettext implementation in a later version\&.
