SCons will parse each source <filename>.java</filename> file

SCons will also search each Java file

For example,
the file
<filename>Foo.java</filename>
defining a single public

Java source files can use the native encoding for the underlying OS.
Since SCons compiles in simple ASCII mode by default,
the compiler will generate warnings about unmappable characters,
which may lead to errors as the file is processed further.
In this case, the user must specify the <literal>LANG</literal>
environment variable to tell the compiler what encoding is used.
For portibility, it's best if the encoding is hard-coded
so that the compile will work if it is done on a system

This pseudo-builder belongs to <link xmlns="http://www.scons.org/dbxsd/v1.0" linkend="t-gettext"><literal>gettext</literal></link> toolset. The builder extracts
internationalized messages from source files, updates <literal>POT</literal>
template (if necessary) and then updates <literal>PO</literal> translations (if
necessary). If <link xmlns="http://www.scons.org/dbxsd/v1.0" linkend="cv-POAUTOINIT"><envar>$POAUTOINIT</envar></link> is set, missing <literal>PO</literal> files
will be automatically created (i.e. without translator person intervention).
The variables <link xmlns="http://www.scons.org/dbxsd/v1.0" linkend="cv-LINGUAS_FILE"><envar>$LINGUAS_FILE</envar></link> and <link xmlns="http://www.scons.org/dbxsd/v1.0" linkend="cv-POTDOMAIN"><envar>$POTDOMAIN</envar></link> are taken into

The simplest way is to specify input files and output languages inline in
a SCons script when invoking <function xmlns="http://www.scons.org/dbxsd/v1.0">Translate</function>

If you wish, you may also stick to conventional style known from
<productname>autotools</productname>, i.e. using
<filename>POTFILES.in</filename> and <filename>LINGUAS</filename> files

The last approach is perhaps the recommended one. It allows easily split
internationalization/localization onto separate SCons scripts, where a script
in source tree is responsible for translations (from sources to
<literal>PO</literal> files) and script(s) under variant directories are
responsible for compilation of <literal>PO</literal> to <literal>MO</literal>
files to and for installation of <literal>MO</literal> files. The "gluing
factor" synchronizing these two scripts is then the content of
<filename>LINGUAS</filename> file.  Note, that the updated
<literal>POT</literal> and <literal>PO</literal> files are usually going to be
committed back to the repository, so they must be updated within the source
directory (and not in variant directories). Additionaly, the file listing of
<filename>po/</filename> directory contains <filename>LINGUAS</filename> file,
so the source tree looks familiar to translators, and they may work with the
project in their usual way.

not be committed back to source repositories (e.g. <literal>MO</literal>

This builder is only available after using the tool 'qt'. Note: you can

files to the <function xmlns="http://www.scons.org/dbxsd/v1.0">Program</function>,

built files; if you don't want prefixes, you may set them to ``).
