Umm, if you are a windows user, you can still run the shell scripts quite
fine. Just set up CygWin/DJGPP/MinGW, ues the bash shell, and you are all

Presently, I do all of my editing at home in a local gvim window, on
Win2K, using cygwin and a ported bash shell. The files i'm editing are
mounted to my local system via NFS from my server, and that works
brilliantly for me.

Would it be ok if it was all strings matching my string pattern after the
translate comment like that ?

One further thing for the purpose of matching like this, I am going to go
thru all of the files and change the marker for the start of untranslated
strings to something else.
Probably "/* **** UNTRANSLATED STRINGS **** */"
This is because the // To translate is really similar, and I want a
distinct marker.
