Subject Fwd: How do I use the localized reports
Date Wed, 01 Sep 2004 17:23:10 GMT
I am trying to implement this (it seemed like a good way to start
developing on SA).

The strait forward way was to just update the $lang variable in, but the $lang is obeviously set before the parsing of
$self->{config_text} begins. There is also a nother problem. The
userprefs file is parsed as the last one which makes it hard to select
the right "lang xx" configuration lines.

The problem could be solved by parsing the files last,
but I dont if that creates other problems.

Yes, but what if people use spamd?  LANG for spamc is irrelevent, and the LANG
for spamd is a global default.

What I would guess is that the code should use LANG, but a configuration
option "use_language" (or something) would reset LANG appropriately.
Therefore "spamassassin" and "sa-learn" can do the right thing, and spamd
would have an option to change LANG at run-time.
