NAME ^

Xacobeo::I18n - Utilities for internationalization (i18n).

SYNOPSIS ^

        # Initialize the i18n framework (done once)
        use FindBin;
        use Xacobeo::I18n;
        Xacobeo::I18n->init("$FindBin::Bin/../share/locale/");
        
        
        # Import the i18n utilities (used everywhere where i18n is needed)
        use Xacobeo::I18n;
        print __("Hello world"), "\n";

DESCRIPTION ^

This package provides utilities that perform i18n. This module relies on gettext.

The initialization of the i18n framework should be performed only once, preferably as soon as possible. Once the framework is initialized any module requiring to translate a string can include this module.

This module exports automatically the shortcut functions used for translating messages. This is done in order to make the translation transparent.

FUNCTIONS ^

The following functions are available:

__

Translates a single string through gettext.

Parameters:

__x

Translates a string that uses place holders for variable substitution.

Parameters:

__n

Translates a string in either singular or plural.

Parameters:

__nx

Translates a string in either singular or plural with variable substitution.

Parameters:

__xn

Same as "__nx".

Parameters:

domain

Returns the translation domain.

init

Initializes the i18n framework (gettext). Must be called in the fashion:

        Xacobeo::I18n->init($folder);

Parameters:
