[REBOL] accents in french
From: luc:spirlet:skynet:be at: 17-Dec-2004 16:03
Exploring Mandrake 9.0 (Redhat kernel, I think) to search my accents in
french, I've discovered a few little things.
1) .i18n : file created by Kylix probably can be a source of trouble because
the language is referenced by en_EN in place of fr_FR. How this file is
called? I don't know.
(I had a different behavior in the area and field objects in rebol until
changed the en_EN into fr_FR)
2) In the directory xkb/symbols, we find country files.
These files supply only the differences in the keyboards and
KDE complete for the locale config.
3) Rebol takes perhaps the basic keyboard in the kernel and not
the complement of Mandrake distribution.
4) The rebolian must thus interprete this basic keyboard.
Wrong or right?
Is there anyone who can confirm or not because my way to search
a solution in rebol could be valid or invalid?
The french community programmers says that it is a problem from
linux. I'm not sure. It is possible that we could change the config files
in linux but we couldn't get a standard of these changes. The french
gurus seems have choosed this way. We can change long time a
complement and a complement of a complement. You see?
Rebol run very good on win98. No problems with area and field
objects. Because no problems, I've not search in this area.
Carlos and Sunanda talked about these problems in earlier messages.
Run search engine. You will find a problem with %Ebourrif=E9e.
I've readed that. Very instructive!
But I've not the solution with mandrake 9.0. Rebol stays REBELLE.
I hope to get it. Your help will be very good appreciated. Thanks a lot.
Thanks a lot.
