in reply to Gettext not working on Windows

From the POD

Tested on Solaris 2.6 and Red Hat Linux 6.0

TO DO: Gettext.pm calls the external gettext utility program, but someday should have an internal routine to directory read .mo files.

Unless you have installed a version of the gettext(.exe?) utility to your Windows system and ensured that it is in your path; the module will not work om Windows.

    gettext is in the path. gettext --help prints the help message.

      Even so, the module will not work on Windows because this syntax will not work there:

      `LANGUAGE=$category;LC_MESSAGES=$category;TEXTDOMAINDIR=$self->{'DIRNA +ME'};$gettextcmd $domainname $msgid`;
