poe - .po file editor
=====================

Q: Why?
A: - There should be no need for GNOME to edit .po files.
   - Some folks prefer terminal to GUI.
   - No, plugin for vi(m) isn't enough.

Q: Why C?
A: Because <Go/Rust/whatever soydev language of the moment> sucks.

Q: Why is poe saying there are <N+1> messages in my file when 
   other editors say there are <N> messages?
A: Because poe takes into account (and allows editing of) the first,
   special msgid.

Q: This doesn't do X!
A: See TODO for a list of implemented and planned features. I might
   consider adding a feature if I have time, but already poe has all
   the major ones I planned. It is meant to be a simple .po editing
   program.

Q: Is this suckless?
A: Definitely not. Any TUI is not suckless. gettext is not suckless,
   and thus .po files are also not suckless. Despite that, some
   suggestions for a suckless approach to editing .po files are:
   vi, ed. Still, termbox, used by poe, is less bloated than ncurses.
