BaCon 1.0.22pre-20110314

There have been some significant improvements to BaCon recently. You can find out about these from discussion on the BaCon Forum:
http://basic-converter.proboards.com/index.cgi

One of the improvements is support of internationalization, and this has been refined over the last few days.

Here is the latest PET, suitable for inclusion in the 'devx' of all Woof-built puppies:
http://distro.ibiblio.org/quirky/pet_packages-quirky/bacon-1.0.22pre-20110314.pet

The 'pet.specs' entry:
bacon-1.0.22pre-20110314|bacon|1.0.22pre-20110314||Utility|1168K||bacon-1.0.22pre-20110314.pet||Basic programming lanuage compiler, you need the 'devx' sfs loaded also||||

Here is the required entry for PKGS_SPECS_TABLE variable (in Woof):
yes|bacon||exe>dev,dev,doc>dev,nls

After you have run '2createpackages' and '3builddistro' in Woof, BaCon will be in the 'devx' SFS.

Note that this PET has /usr/lib/hug.so, a shared library for HUG (Highlevel Universal GUI). I will update my BaCon web pages to explain how to use this very soon.

the bacon and tcc with all the needed includes to run only take 2megs and saves the need for devx

re bacon bits
ted dog,
Have you created a PET of that?

Here is the latest proxy-setup, which makes use of the latest improvements to internationalization and window layout:

BaCon Bits Dev pkg
yes kinda, needs help updated etc.

will link tcc to cc so that the compiler switch is not needed. Only 750k compressed, nice

BaCon internationalization
I have updated the internationalization howto page:

http://bkhome.org/bacon/international.htm

Oh man, Peter is a very active developer! My latest BaCon PET has hug.so shared library to reduce size of executables, however Peter has introduced a new feature that will achieve reduction in size without needing the shared library:
