The sctextw program

The sctextw program is used to view or to edit text strings in configurable language text files.

A number of language files used by Sculptor programs, utilities and commands are provided with the Sculptor system, and contain the default English text. These files generally bear the same name as the program or utility, with the extension .eng. These should be edited with great care, and lines should not be added or removed.

The language file common contains text used by the Sculptor system generally rather than by a single program or utility. This includes the default formats for dates and times, which are stored as items 61-66.

User language text files may be freely created for use in applications. Although all the facilities for editing a language file are provided within sctextw, options also exist to export a language file to an ASCII file for editing, and to reimport it.
