I tested the new cvs version of Statist, and setting
LC_TYPE and LC_MESSAGES, the accents are being
correctly displayed. But I still prefer to see the
decimal separator being a comma when the output is in
Portuguese. My suggestion is to set the locale to "C"
before reading data files and writing columns, and
re-set it back to saved_locale after these operations.
Only plot.c needs a lot of set and reset, but I
already did it in the patch of last week.
If this solution is accepted, I think that we have
only to set & reset locale in two other places:
readsourcefile() (data.c) and menue.c ("Data
management | Export columns as ASCII-data").
The Statist documentation should warn the user that
the data file uses "dots" as decimal separators, but
that the results are internationalized.
We could also add a menu option like "Data management
| Export columns as ASCII-data using current locale".
The documentation would explain what this means.
The last week patch regarding the problem with missing
values was made against the old cvs version of
Statist. I don't have experience with diff, but since
the cvs was modified, and because you made corrections
in some of my changes, I guess that the patch is no
more applicable. If this is the case, I can prepare
the patch again. That is, I will
- run diff to compare the current cvs version
with my version of statist.
- manually do in my version of statist the
corrections that you did in cvs.
- run diff again
