rimga: you should use localize, not localize_sl.
Comment 3 rimga 2005-04-06 17:09:32 UTC
But i use localize (it is visible from screenshots also). localize_sl is 
called by localize script.
Comment 4 gregor.hartmann 2005-04-08 10:39:31 UTC
after looking at the sources it might be that you do not have a valid file at

The linenumbers in the callstack would also help a lot to find the problem.
Comment 5 2005-04-08 11:21:58 UTC

You might run ' localize ...' instead of ' -env localize ...'. I
experienced same issue when I missed '-env'. The localize.exe (actaully
underlying filesystem handling layer) does not like unix paths in environment

Thanks jeongkyu, 
your comment helped. I think this issue can be closed.

Please forgive me to reopen this issue. I believe that localize_sl could handle
the situation better than crash. For instance, it could display error message
such as mentioning '-env' in tcsh.

How do you think?
Comment 10 ivo.hinkelmann 2005-04-14 14:44:25 UTC
jeongkyu, do you want from every tool within the OOo buildssystem ( there are a
lot! ) to test if your environment is proper set ????

I didn't meant it. :-)

I used it for getting sdf file and putting it back to test localization issue. I
thought localize_sl is utility for localization. Also, I agree we don't need to
check if environment is set correctly. However, it would be better if we could
avoid crash (by checking 'null object'). 

Does it make sense to you?
Comment 13 ivo.hinkelmann 2005-04-14 17:58:22 UTC
I'll build in such a check
