This is an interesting use-case indeed.

Yes, since my cgi-scripts are shell scripts on an embedded system. I use the programs both for xgettext and translating the strings.

I'll provide a patch tomorrow.

Contexts were introduced for GUI programs, see https://www.gnu.org/software/gettext/manual/html_node/Contexts.html

Are you creating a GUI program through a shell script? How does this look like? Can you provide an example as gettext-tools/examples/hello-sh-gui/ directory, similar to the gettext-tools/examples/hello-sh/ example?

I am missing something like 'npgettext' for shell scripting. I think this would be easy to add to the standard tools.

Let's see if I can provide a patch file by the end of the day.
