BUG of SDLPAL on Linux

Sep 14, 2010 at 1:29 PM

Dear Developer :

I think there is a Bug with this program on Linux . For the data file of PAL named by upper case letters . But you know , Linux is sensitive with upper cas.e letters and lower case letters .And SDLPAL use lower case file name , this cause it can't work on Linux without change the data file name or modify the source code .It will not be difficult to solve this problem , I think .

Thanks for spending time reading this report . For I am not familiar with CodePlex , I use this way to report bug .

if you copy the data files from the original CD under GNU/Linux (rather than using some downloaded copy) it'll be lower case by default.

So this is not a bug.

I'm sorry to tell you that I have original CD. But I have this problem.

wronganswer means in PAL DOS version, all the letters are in upper case, rather than lower case. But in PAL 95, they are in lower case.

We know that in DOS all letters are upper.

So, I think it's a bug.

it's upper case under Windows but not GNU/Linux.
