kateenc creates Kate streams from input files (SubRip SRT subtitles, LRC
lyrics, and libkate's custom description language). When saved to an Ogg
stream (the default behavior), a Kate stream may then be merged with other Ogg
streams (eg, a Theora video) using the oggz tools.
- Show command line help.
- Show version information.
- Allow simple HTML-like markup in SRT files. If this parameter is used,

- Write the output Kate stream to the given file name (writes to stdout if
- -l language

- -C tag=value
- Adds a comment to encode into the output Kate stream. The comment must be
of the form tag=value, and comply with the Vorbis comment rules (eg, tag
is composed of a particular subset of ASCII characters, and value is valid

be seen as a single command line parameter.
- -t filetype
- Specifies the type of the input (srt, lrc, kate)
- -R threshold
- Use repeat packets, with the given threshold (in seconds). Data packets
will be repeated at intervals of roughly threshold seconds, while
- -K threshold
- Use keepalive packets, with the given threshold (in seconds). Keepalive
packets will be emitted when no other packet has been emitted for roughly
