In Response to Re: The Editor is more messed up than you think:
Actually it is an easy concept to understand. The same phrase (e.g. "Latest 5 logged actions") might be used hundred of times on a site. So there are basically two ways of having it displayed. Have the "Latest 5 logged actions" repeated hundreds of times in "X" number of files, or make a master phrase file, and reference it that way.
What a programmer would do, or instance put this into the master phrase file.
'LATEST_LOGS' = /> 'Latest 5 logged actions'
Then in the program at all the hundred of locations they'd issue a command like:
And the echo $_forumrow_val['FORUM_DESC']; is replaced by
'Latest 5 logged actions' with the user being unaware of it.
Say then it is decided that they want it as "LATEST 5 logged actions" not "Latest 5 logged actions" (latest to caps). To make the change, the programmer would have to locate the "Latest 5 logged actions" hundreds of times and fix it, if not using the master phrase file.
However by using a master phrase file, the programmer only has to open the master phrase file, change one word, save it, and viola, the hundreds of times "Latest 5 logged actions" is now shown as "LATEST 5 logged actions". Easy? Sure is, and is common programming practices, at lease for compentant programmers.
Add to that, they could use another master phrase file(s) for different languages, thus making it readable by people that don't understand english
For FRENCH it would be: 'LATEST_LOGS' = /> 'Laatste 5 ingelogd acties'
For GERMAN it would be: 'LATEST_LOGS' = /> 'Neueste 5 protokollierten Aktionen'
For FILIPINO it would be: 'LATEST_LOGS' = /> 'Pinakabagong 5-log pagkilos'
The same basic concept could be used to do other things through out the program/website. Then if the management wants something changed, the change is easy, depending on what it is.
I WOULD LIKE TO SUGGEST, that you tell your nephew, if he's taking college classes, to check with his instructor first. The instructor's class plan may not be getting to this at all, or near the end of the class, and he/she might be upset if your nephew does it. Some programming instructors think their way is the only way to do things, and could give your nephew a hassle.
I had to take a programming class for my degree path, in something I'd been using for years in the USAF. So, I got the lesson plan, assignments, etc on-line (in this case I was taking the class remotely).
I had all the assignments, etc completed before the first day of the class, and submitted them all (took me about a day). Well, the instructor wasn't happy about that... I filled up her e-mail inbox... snicker... snicker..., athough I hadn't intended that.
Well, I found out that I ruined the grading curve, because all my assignments had a score of 100%, as well as all my tests, etc. I knew another student that took the same class the next semester, and the instructor specifically said in the syllabus that assignments couldn't be submitted before 3 days before the due date, HAHAHAHAHA.
