Re: PCGen and PCScry
- Yes, it would. He's a lot occupied lately, we will speak toghether in
the weekend about my last features request and about the translation
However, as you should know, PcGen Internationalization stuff have not
answered to my proposals of doing a very simple database where to put
all the string to translate, and generate with it (with php or some
other very-easy web software) the datasets dinamically, with the
already-translated words inside them.
I got some compliments by some of the mailing list reader but nothing
else, and nothing is moving. My intention wasn't to do any revolution
in the staff but only to find a better way of translating stuff, cause
the actual way don't worth it...
If you translate once, you'll have to translate again for every
dataset change or for every tag added/changed.
About the java thing, we will speak about that too. Martin itself
speaked to me about the intention to use java, but as I known Pocket
PC are NOT yet java mobile compatible...
Palms really belongs to a Chaotic Plane...
iPhones will be java compatible and will use MacOsx as OS...
Pocket Pcs are Windows CE compatible but java is still not working in
There are Smartphones that use Symbian too, in that case java works...
I don't know what to do: however, using .net (that I really hate...)
it's possible to translate Vb .net software into java and viceversa,
so, maybe, it will possible to mantain the code in a language and
produce different installers for every device...
