Using gettext would be fine but we must link everything statically, and
I doubt that is worth the effort to put the mo's into the exe as some
data ressource, dump it at start to some dirs and use it then. Can
gettext() use internals ressources? Can it use some kind of
MapViewOfFile handle, which points some some location inside the exe?
If not the MS solution is by far better.
But what concerns me really is the download size. 270kb is fine, but now
with 800kb I'm concerned.
An argument for demand-downloaded .mo files, then?
An argument for simply adding the translations to res.rc as localized
STRINGTABLES. That doesn't extract the strings from the source code
automatically, but most of our strings are in the rc anyway.
xemacs also uses our setup.exe.
That version forked some time ago, AFAIK.
Ah, I'll have a look, what they improved.
