System: Debian Bullseye
xgettext version: 0.21

When running

xgettext -l PHP ...

on a PHP source file with translatable strings in the function


 and enclosed in double ", only the ones without complex aka. curly variables in the string are identified and added to the .pot, while those including them are skipped.
Also found no way to manually add those strings into the .pot, that is overwritten by invocations of xgettext, effectively leaving those strings out.

- Expected behavior: Include the strings with complex syntax with the content of {$<expression>} (where expression is a PHP expression) to be copied as is into msgid.
- Observed behavior: Strings with complex syntax are completely skipped.
