Puppy localization

I just posted the following to one of the Akita Puppy threads on the Forum, thought that it would be informative here also:

Regarding localisation of scripts, Woof now has /usr/share/doc/HOWTO-internationalization.htm -- not in Wary/Racy 5.2.2.

This describes the three techniques employed by Puppy, as well as technosauruses technique -- the latter has been used by L18L and L18L has created an online help page will more details.

View HOWTO file:

If anyone wants to contribute to internationalization of a script in any of the puplets, get the latest version of the script out of the Woof Fossil online repository. It is easy to grab individual files out of the Woof repo -- go to http://bkhome.org/fossil/woof2.cgi/index, login as anonymous, click on 'Files' in menu, locate file, then click on 'Download'. Or, download the entire Woof repo, which is explained in online help page.

After changing the script to support localization, send it to me at STARTbkaulerATgmailDOTcomEND -- please put "woof" in the message title. Or, if adding translations, send those to me also.

download_progress is a great little script to replace `rxvt -e wget`, by techno.. It might be popular in many pups... Check it out..

It loads a nice Xdialog progress bar, with info..

I have i18n'd it, added a few (bad?) translations..

I also added a 2nd, optional parameter - output file/dir

i18n woof scripts
I am going to post my collection of gettexted scripts, but first I need to synchronize in with current woof2. Maybe it could be useful.
