What's this?

-------------
Ruby-GetText-Package is a Localization(L10n) Library and Tools which is 
modeled after GNU gettext package.

The library converts the messages to localized messages properly using 
client-side locale information. And the tools for developers support 
to create, use, and modify localized the message files(message catalogs) 
easily.

Features:
  * Simple APIs(similar GNU gettext)
  * rgettext command for creating po-files from files below:
       o ruby scripts
       o glade-2 XML file(.glade)
       o ERB file(.rhtml)
       o ActiveRecord (.rb)
  * rmsgfmt command for creating a mo-file from a po-file.
  * The po-file is compatible to GNU gettext. 
    You can maintain these files to use GNU getext tools.
  * The mo-file is compatible to GNU gettext(msgfmt).
  * multi-textdomain supported. 
    You can bind plural textdomains to a class/module.
  * CGI support (gettext/cgi)
  * ERB support (gettext/erb)
  * Ruby on Rails support (gettext/rails)
