runcat - Pipes message text source from mkcatdefs to gencat
runcat catalog_name source_file [catalogfile]
The runcat command invokes the mkcatdefs command and pipes the message catalog source data (the output from mkcatdefs) to the gencat program.
The file source_file contains the message text with your symbolic identifiers. The mkcatdefs program uses the catalog_name argument to generate the name of the symbolic definition file by adding _msg.h to the end of the catalog_name value, and to generate the symbolic name for the catalog file by adding MF_ to the beginning of the catalog_name value. The definition file must be included in your application program. The symbolic name for the catalog file can be used in the library functions (such as the catopen function).
