And Emile> naturally, that's nonsense. Except that programs that are primarily run by cron still do something useful when run from the command line. You can logrotate, updatedb, etc. etc. before cron decides it's time to do it, just by running the programs on the command line, if you ever feel the need to. On the other hand, translators generally don't do anything useful when run from the command line, other than spitting out a warning message, as has been mentioned many times during this discussion, and it doesn't really make any sense to run them from the command line. -- Hubert Chan <email@example.com> - http://www.uhoreg.ca/ PGP/GnuPG key: 1024D/124B61FA Fingerprint: 96C5 012F 5F74 A5F7 1FF7 5291 AF29 C719 124B 61FA Key available at wwwkeys.pgp.net.
