Internationalization on a calculator? Don't you all whine about AMS internationalization?
That's a completely different: AMS localisation cause problems. A well done localisation should not.

In 2004? You must be kidding me...
No a lot of student have limited access to the internet at scool and no access at home

Even "limited access" is enough to post a few messages. And cybercafes exist, too.

You may have a lot of money to lose for going to cybercafe and spending 15€ for 30minutes of web access on a ferry, but real student don't have rich parents and don't have money for going every day on a cybercafe (and even it need to have a cybercafe near, that is not true everywhere)
INI files can be used for a lot of things, internationalisation for exemple, just change the ini file and the program is localized (this is just another example) using a binary file for this is just a borring, and buggy way

But anyway, using a binary file is just fine for internationalization. Even GNU gettext uses binary files: the .pot text files are compiled into .mo binaries which are the files actually used at runtime.

TI are not PC, they dont have the horse power of a pc, nor have the memory of a pc, converting text files to binary files (and back) are not a good way for this purpose on those plateform

That was 9€/30mins and that's on a ferry. Cybercafes in cities are cheaper.

And you don't have to go there every day to get some space allocated in a structure, only twice: once to post your request, and once to read the OK (and the exact location of your substructure) from the programmer managing the structure. Just make sure you ask for the proper number of bytes. smile

Of course you'd compile them on a PC, just like the program itself.

And a resource compiler is really not something requiring lots of resources. Flanker's project already showed that the parsing is possible on-calc, generating the binary file is trivial. And there are even on-calc assemblers, on-calc C compilers, on-calc BASIC tokenizers (One of them is even built into the operating system! The GFA tokenizer is another one.) and so forth, which are much harder to write than a resource compiler.

Did you asked PpHd to add conflib into stdlib(for PreOS0.72)?

stdlib is going to get larger and larger if everyone wants to add their favorite library as a "standard" library... sad

at least the first one, even I'm interested by this possibility smile

From what I could read quickly in this topic a while ago, this library should be used mostly during debugging stage, shouldn't it ? Therefore, I don't think adding it to the standard library is good.

No, not necessarily. See my posts, for example.
