Good evening,

David MENTRE a écrit :
Ok. Do you still want me to apply your proposed modification?
       let dir          =
         if Sys.os_type <> "Win32" then None
         else Some "locale"

I think it is necessary for gettext to work:
. 'let dir = None' => failure
. 'let dir = Some "locale"' => works but of course only under windows
. Proposed change seems to fail: maybe address@hidden behaves like it was under
  POSIX/gnu/linux system and doesn't acknowledge this.
  For it to work, some string

Code below seems to work better:
      let dir          =
        match Sys.os_type with
          "Win32" | "Cygwin" -> Some "locale"
        | _                  -> None

as I was able to run the program without any problem. It is not fixed; I
assume only a better mojo improved the situation.

What means "mojo"??

Sorry, this is US slang (and probably no longer only "afro-american"). Its meaning is close to "luck"/"appeal"/"ability". Mojo is some kind of lucky charm in caribbean culture (voodoo).

What I meant: if it works while I don't know what the fix is, then it may break again anytime. Unless you light some candle, wear some strange african-like medal and of course strongly believe in that stuff.

The only modification I can really recall is coercing ld/gcc into linking against the GTK version of gettext/libintl.

   This however involves stripping all the GTK runtime from the installer, as
   I have other plans for this part of the installer.

Notice that part of the mail. It was important to understand the bug reported in another mail.

I've uploaded

Nota: it probably requires advanced user rights (aka power-user if I'm not mistaken). But maybe not. I have already seen this handled and I hope to come up with a fix to a still unobvious bug.

for testing. not included as I don't have time to check and fix
anything regarding i18n.

I still need to test it.

Maybe I could add the eo.po that has been discussed earlier to make it all the more valuable.

Best regards,
Christophe GISQUET
