Library for message translation for Perl

'libintl-perl' is a library that supports message translation for Perl. Its interface is a superset of the gettext family of functions in C, and it uses the same file formats as GNU 'gettext', so you can use all the available 'gettext' tools to integrate internationalized Perl code into mixed-language projects.
