Description josef radinger 2002-06-11 03:03:13 EDT

in /etc/rc.d/init.d/squid there are several echo-lines starting with:
echo $"blabla..."

the lines are:
echo -n $"Starting $prog: "
echo -n  $"Stopping $prog: "
echo $"Usage: $0 {start|stop|status|reload|restart|condrestart}"

why would one use $ in front off the text?

yours josef
