.SH "DESCRIPTION"
.PP
\fBsd_journal_get_catalog()\fR
retrieves a message catalog entry for the current journal entry\&. This will look up an entry in the message catalog by using the
"MESSAGE_ID="
field of the current journal entry\&. Before returning the entry all journal field names in the catalog entry text enclosed in "@" will be replaced by the respective field values of the current entry\&. If a field name referenced in the message catalog entry does not exist, in the current journal entry, the "@" will be removed, but the field name otherwise left untouched\&.
.PP
\fBsd_journal_get_catalog_for_message_id()\fR
works similar to
\fBsd_journal_get_catalog()\fR
but the entry is looked up by the specified message ID (no open journal context is necessary for this), and no field substitution is performed\&.
.PP
For more information about the journal message catalog please refer to the
\m[blue]\fBJournal Message Catalogs\fR\m[]\&\s-2\u[1]\d\s+2
documentation page\&.
.SH "RETURN VALUE"
.PP
\fBsd_journal_get_catalog()\fR
and
\fBsd_journal_get_catalog_for_message_id()\fR
return 0 on success or a negative errno\-style error code\&. If no matching message catalog entry is found, \-ENOENT is returned\&.
.PP
On successful return,
\fIret\fR
points to a new string, which must be freed with
\fBfree\fR(3)\&.
