[I18N] String disambiguation
Last modified: 2008-09-04 11:27:09 EDT
During the translation process of pulseaudio we notice this string in the command line help (/src/utils/pacat.c:490) :
" --format=SAMPLEFORMAT The sample type, one of s16le, s16be, u8, float32le,\n"
" float32be, ulaw, alaw (defaults to s16ne)\n"
It is strange that s16ne is the default as it doesn't appear in the previous list. Please, could you confirm that this is correct and not a typo.
Actually s16ne is right, since it is just an alias to the native endian s16 type of the local machine. The man page is more elaborate about this.
It might indeed be a bit surprising but I'd like to leave --help much terser than the man page, and hence i'd like to leave it the way it is right now.
Thanks anyway for pointing this out!
