Update tools/tools/locale

Authored by hrs on Jun 29 2020, 5:37 AM.



Update tools/tools/locale to add make targets to automatically generate locale source files. With this patch, just typing "make obj && make" should build them.

Fix issues in ja_JP ctypedef and range specification support in

Details are as follows:


  • Support .OBJDIR.
  • Support pararell build.
  • Add a check of the installed tools.
  • Update to use CLDR v35.


  • Use eucJP for ja_JP ctypedef because eucJP is not compatible with UTF-8.


  • Add a verbose error message.


  • Normalize entries to use Unicode, not UTF-8.

It looks good to me. Don't forget to mention in the commit log that it updates also Unicode to Unicode 13

As I was going through MFCing locale changes, I noticed one little (BIG) problem with this review/commit -- it forgot to actually install the updated sources to share/ subdirectories, so we currently ship what was previous version in share/.

I'll take care of this in upcoming changes, no action required.

Was this submitted upstream as it's pretty hard to maintain such patches?
