Dear Software Developer:
Thank you for your interest in FLPP, a source code utility designed
to ease and accelerate software development for foreign languages. This
package demonstrates the basic capabilities of FLPP and may be distributed
freely. The commercial version of FLPP is available from Medal Computing
The tools included with the FLPP demo package are:
Extract This utility extracts all new strings from your
source code and enters them into a specified
strings database. Each new string is entered as
a string for the native language.
Display This utility allows you to view, edit and print
the strings database. Each database is capable
of handling strings of 126 characters for up to
20 different languages. The edit mode provides
an easy and controlled method to translate
strings into each foreign language.
FLPP This utility is a pre-processor which runs before
your C compiler. FLPP searches the input file
for strings. For each native language string
found, flpp selects the translated string for the
specified foreign language and substitutes the
translated string for the native string.
It is important to note the limitations of this demo package. The
major differences are the maximum length of the strings and the number
of foreign languages. The maximum string length of the demo version is
20 characters while the production version is 126. The maximum number
of languages in the demo version is 2 while the production version is
Thank you again for your interest in FLPP. If you have any other

knowledgeable person from our technical staff will help you.
