Hi Jon,

We compiled multiple printer files, one for each language within the
"language" library using the appropriate message file.
At runtime we override the printer file before opening it.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen / Best regards

Birgitta Hauser

Betreff: Question for Printer Gurus

I'm beginning to believe that the folks who did DDS for printer files never
talked to the folks who did display files ...

Latest barrier in my conversion effort is lack of support for the MSGID
keyword on printer files. MSGCON is supported but that is of no use to me
since I need to be able to use the LIBL to control the message file that is
used and MSGCON values are resolved at compile time as far as I can tell.

I know a number of you out there write apps that support multiple languages
- how the heck do you handle that for printer files?
