Things Going on!

I came across a term “Plural-Forms: nplurals=INTEGER; plural=EXPRESSION;\n” in header of .po file format, while translating drupal cms. It shows number of plural forms for particular language. For Gujarati it will be like this : “Plural-Forms: nplurals=2; plural=(n!=1);\n” Still, need to explore about it more. It is needed by if po file have entry like below:

msgid “1 post”
msgid_plural “%count posts”
msgstr[0] “૧ પોસ્ટ”
msgstr[1] “%count પોસ્ટ”

If language have more than 2 plural forms, one need to change a things here (ie Sanskrit).
