git-sh-i18n--envsubst - Gits own envsubst(1) for i18n fallbacks



eval_gettext () {
        printf "%s" "$1" | (
                export PATH $(git sh-i18n--envsubst --variables "$1");
                git sh-i18n--envsubst "$1"


This is not a command the end user would want to run. Ever. This documentation is meant for people who are studying the plumbing scripts and/or are writing new ones.

git sh-i18n--envsubst is Git\(cqs stripped-down copy of the GNU envsubst(1) program that comes with the GNU gettext package. It\(cqs used internally by git-sh-i18n(1) to interpolate the variables passed to the eval_gettext function.

No promises are made about the interface, or that this program won\(cqt disappear without warning in the next version of Git. Don\(cqt use it.


Part of the git(1) suite
