lm_gui - simple GUI tool for managine Locale::VersionedMessages lexicons
This tool can be used to maintain the lexicon files used by the Locale::VersionedMessages perl module.
The Locale::VersionedMessages module allows translation tables (i.e. lexicons) for a set of message to be stored in perl modules to be used in a localized program.
This tool allows you to create a new set of messages, add lexicons (i.e. a lookup table for a locale), as well as add or update any of the messages in the lexicons.
All messages should be entered (and will be stored) as UTF-8 text. Other encodings are not currently supported.
This tool is localized using the Locale::VersionedMessages tools. It should be noted that some of the messages contain markup (such as <b>...</b>). This markup is NOT part of Locale::Mesasages. The markup is handled internally by this program to make the GUI more user friendly.
Because I use standard Tk widgets to create the GUI, some of the widgets do not exactly look like they ideally would. For example when browsing for a Message Set Description file in the main window, a popup appears with a <File name> entry and a <Files of type> menu. Since we're only interested in .pm files, I would like to remove the <Files of type> box, but that widget won't allow me to do so.
Please refer to the Locale::VersionedMessages documentation for information on submitting bug reports or questions to the author.
