Hello Mr. Dautelle,
I use Jscience 4.3.1 for a project and fell over some minor issues. Since I
also use *ix machines I didn't recognise the encoding problems at the first
place. But when I tried to use and to compile it on a windows machine there
were several errors due to unicode characters in the source code. I replaced
all of them by the proper escape sequences. Some of the symbols might be still
ambiguous (e.g. the dot operator may be encoded as "middle dot" (U+00B7) or
"dot operator" (U+22C5); or the great omega and the ohm-sign). This could be a
problem in parsing amounts.
The last problem left was the constants-class. Here, unicode characters were
used in identifiers. This makes source code that uses the constants nicer, but
is an interoperability problem. I would personally tend to not using them. So,
I also changed the identifiers in question and also added synonyms using upper
case letters as recommended by the Java conventions.
I attached a diff based on the released source code version 4.3.1. Maybe You
have a use for it.
Additionally, I'd like to ask how version 5 is going? I checked out the svn
trunk these days. It seems, the refactoring isn't finished at the moment. You
wrote on one news group in January that you still need some weeks. What's the
Thanks for Your work, it really saved me much time.
