Converts .po files to C source code

'po2c' takes gettext (.po) language translation files from their command line arguments and returns a C source code file containing all those messages and the necessary functions to use them without any other dependency. This is useful for deploying .po translated strings to systems where no easy gettext support exist, or when a unique, self-contained binary without external file dependencies is convenient (for example, embedded or small systems).
