Have you heard of locale? Probably not, since both of you are from
*.uk This is from Ultrix manual, you'll find similar words anywhere:


     gencat - generate a formatted message catalog

     gencat catalog_file [source_file ...]

     The gencat    command takes one or more message source files and either
     creates a new catalog or merges new message text into an existing cata-

Lout use it if compiled with USE_LOCALE to produce a catalog of
localized messages (LC_MESSAGES category), see a makefile for details.
Since all of you are English speakers you'll probably never stumble
across this :-) (I'm not an english speaker, still I prefer native
english messages so I don't use LC_MESSAGES either).

BTW, since we're speaking about locale anyway, I have a question to
Jeff. Why Lout don't use LC_COLLATE category to sort indices? (well to
sort @Key'ed galleys in fact).

Best regards!

SY, Uwe.
