Our 0.1 Beta

just to recap, our project is to create an automatic build tool that uses the standard en-GB localization folder/files to generate/uses as a different type of english such as en-IN, en-CA and en-US.

Rueen, Armen and I have worked on the actual code, and we think we did made “something happened”. this “something” is working exactly as what we want it to be.

Here is how we get to the point where we are in now.

1. we study python for weeks, knowing where to get the code/function we need and learnt the basic structure.

– file IO, class, if, for, listdir, parser

2. a lot of research on which/what file/folder to use/change/work on/create

– l10n tool, testing/test/lib/ directory,, en-GB

3. we check-out the necessary code, l10n tool

3. followed with 6-7 hours coding yesterday. basically, put everything we understand into the code.

the code ended up to be exactly the same as what I have mentioned from “my idea of the 0.1

1. we have file io that read all the .dtd file

2+3. we have a function that identify the changes need to be made and do it

4. finally, we have it output in the screen/ouput as a file
