how to set scm.exe language to English


Karthik Krishnan (8825118163) | asked Jan 26 '12, 8:17 a.m.
hi,

My system setting is German and when i execute scm.exe i get the messages in deutsche.

How can i get the messages in english? For the jbe.exe giving parameter -nl en runs jbe in english. Are there any similar settings for scm.exe?

Thanks
Karthik

That should work for scm.exe too. They're both eclipse-based, headless clients, and it's eclipse that handles that arg. If that doesn't work, try:
-vmargs -Dosgi.nl=en_US
or
-vmargs -Duser.language=en_US

-Dosgi.nl=en_US
worked perfectly

Thanks Nick

But -nl didn't work? That's odd -- I think all it does is set the osgi.nl property.
How are you launching the SCM CLI? Is it via the scm.exe executable, or batch file?

-nl didnt work. I added the -Dosgi.nl=en_US to scm.ini file

When you tried -nl, was that also in the scm.cli file, and if so was it before or after the -vmargs?

Strange, it works for me when using the batch script:
$ ./scm.sh -nl fr

Syntaxe : scm [options] [subcmd]
subcmd - Nom de la sous-commande excuter

Options :
--config arg - Spcifiez l'emplacement du rpertoire de configuration.
--no-mask - Empchez l'invite de saisie de mot de passe de masquer le mot de passe de l'utilisateur.
--non-interactive - Empcher le client de demander des informations.
-a [--show-alias] arg - Spcifiez o les alias doivent s'afficher : "y"/"yes" ou "n"/"no"
-h [--help] - Afficher ce message.
-n [--dry-run] - Empcher le client de modifier des ressources sur le disque ou dans le systme de fichiers.
-u [--show-uuid] arg - Spcifiez o les identificateurs uniques universels doivent s'afficher : "y"/"yes" ou"n"/"no"
-v [--version] - Afficher le numro de version et quitter.


I can't test the executable right now (using Mac for dev), but there should be no difference as the handling of this arg is in the Java code.
