language files and patches
Date: Mon, 21 Apr 2003 17:33:29 +0200 (MEST)
i`m currently doing a patch for menu_settings.c which also needs additional
the language files.
I`m a little bit confused regarding changes to language files.
# If you want to add a new string, add it to the end of this file!
# If you want to remove a string, just blank it, don't actually remove it!
# If you re-order things or remove entries, you must bump the binary
# file version number in both the 'binlang' tool and the language loader
but in recent cvs commit the following lines have been inserted in the
middle, not at the end:
is the warning message depreciated or did someone make a mistake ?
furthermore, what about a "indicator" on the website if the language file is
in sync (how much & what is out of sync) with the english one?
so one could see, if it is "good" or if it needs maintenance (and which ID`s
This would help keeping the language files more "up to date",IMHO
what about a "global" languagefile?
desc: DESCRIPTION TEXT
eng: "english menu text"
ger: "german translation"
dan: "dansk translation"
esp: "spanish translation"
If an id/desc or whatelse is added or gets depreciated, changes would
perhaps be easier to do and to maintain.
