[Baypiggies] What are you doing with Python?

I wrote scripts to search for ##LocalizedString in code (originally,
NSLocalizedString, but we replaced it with ##LocalizedString and
##LocalizedPluralString), turn it into .po files (with plural forms
support), then transform translated .po files to Localizable.strings (what
XCode likes to use for localization). I made use of polib, regexes,
generators/generator expressions, and StringIO for some pretty concise code

The lack of pervasive Unicode in 2.x is very, very painful, but the library
situation in 3.x is an unknown and it's not installed by default on most
systems, it seems. :(


P.S. ## is substituted the two-letter prefix for my company. Not trying to
keep it secret, but not interested in broadcasting it, either.
