[vlc-devel] $LANG and Mac OS X

Dear friends,

Localization support works very well under OS X, but apparently $LANG 
isn't automatically set on all systems. On my system for instance, 
LANG=fr, but I have at least one other user who claims that $LANG is 
unset. (BTW if anyone know when and why $LANG is set...)

We may have this problem on other OSes as well (Win32 ?), so we need 
to find a solution. I thought of a --lang configuration variable, but 
apparently many strings are loaded before the configuration is 
parsed, so the application would be half-translated.

Any suggestion ?

Christophe Massiot.
