Applies a command to all translations of a translation catalog. The
COMMAND can be any program that reads a translation from standard
input. It is invoked once for each translation. Its output becomes
msgexec's output. msgexec's return code is the maximum return code
across all invocations.
A special builtin command called '0' outputs the translation,
followed by a null byte. The output of "msgexec 0" is suitable as
input for "xargs -0".
