Options
Option Param Description
--width width Define the width (number of columns) for help and some other messages and disable the automatic detection of the terminal width.
-P --patch-bmg mode[cond][=param] This option specifies a BMG patch mode. Some of the modes need a parameter or a file name of a BMG patch file (raw or text BMG), both separated by an equal sign. Modes with required file names are PRINT, REPLACE, INSERT, OVERWRITE, DELETE, MASK, EQUAL and NOTEQUAL. Modes with text parameter are FORMAT, REGEXP and RM-REGEXP. Standalone modes are ID, ID-ALL, UNICODE, RM-ESCAPES, RM-CUPS, CT-COPY, CT-FORCE-COPY, CT-FILL, LE-COPY, LE-FORCE-COPY, LE-FILL, X-COPY, X-FORCE-COPY and X-FILL. Unique abbreviations are allowed.

The optional condition COND is either '?MID' or '!MID'. In case of '?MID', the patch is only applied if the message id MID already exists. In case of '!MID', the patch is only applied if the message id MID does not exists.

If this option is used multiple times, all patch files will be processed in the entered order. --patch is a short cut.

--macro-bmg file Load a BMG file and add the messages to the macro library; already existing entries are replaced. The macro library is accessed by escape sequence \m{MID} as fallback, if the active file has not already defined the message MID by itself.
--filter-bmg list If this option is set, the BMG messages are filtered by this list. Only enabled messages are exported to the output BMG file (binary or text).

The parameter is a list of message ids (short MID, 'Txx' or 'Uxx' or Mxx' or hex number) or message ranges (MID:MID) or one of the keywords NONE, IDENT (=ID), PARAM, CUPS, TRACKS, ARENAS, CHAT, CTCODE (=CT), CTUPS, CTTRACKS, CTARENAS, CTREFS, LECODE (=LE), LEUPS, LETRACKS, LEARENAS, LEREFS, XCODE (=X), XUPS, XTRACKS, XARENAS, XREFS, ALLCODE, ALLUPS, ALLTRACKS, ALLARENAS, ALLREFS, GENERIC or ALL. If an element is preceded by a minus sign, it is removed from the filter list (disabled).

With v2.01a, this option was renamed from --msg to the more meaningful name --filter-bmg. The old name is still available.

-d --dest path Define a destination path (directory/file). The destination - means: write to standard output.

The path may contain escape sequences: %Q is replaced by the fully qualified source name. %P and %F are replaced by the source path or by the filename. %N and %E are replaced by source filename without extension or by the source extension. Finally, %T is replaced by the default extension of the destination format.

A '?' direct behind '%' in %E and %T conversions avoid that the same extension is used twice in row.

-E --esc char Define an alternative escape character for destination files. The default is '%'. For Windows batch files it is a good choice to set '-E$'.
