Hi,
I need to switch languages of my LCD displayed strings at runtime.
As switching from english to german and back.
As far as I know there is a GNU libintl supporting this task.
It provides a gettext() function that returns the string in
the current selected language.
Anyone seen this in the context of newlib?
Is it possible to use it on a single chip ARM environment?
Regards,
Joerg

libintl is an open source project,
(http://www.gnu.org/software/gettext/gettext.html) so you might try
building the library against newlib. However if it has glibc or Linux
dependencies it is going to be mre complex to port. Briefly looking at
the project I would suggest that it is rather heavyweight for and
embedded system and certainly for what you want to do.

It would be fairly simple to implement your own embedded language
resources.
