    Smile simply wondering what PO is

    I opened a project with an IDE, the purposes of the things being created automatically are quiet obvious from the file names of themselves'. But for the "po" folder I couldn't figure out what it stands for. It must be something related with nationalisation but I just failed to guess what it is. Help me! I can't bear to live with that mystery unsolved.

    He's the red one.

    If you said what IDE, what language you were working on, what platform you were on I might be able to suggest other (non-early learning fictional) suggestions

    Perhaps a search of the Web for "po file" would help.

    The IDE is called anjuta and I was on linux. The files I have under the project directory are:

    -rw-r--r-- 1 wando wando 161 2011-10-05 18:27 TODO.tasks


    And in the "po" folder there are "ChangeLog", "LINGUAS" and "POTFILE".
    I saw folders named with "po" before so I thought that is conventional.
    Do you have any idea?

    I see it mentioned everywhere but there are non declaring what it literally stands for. Is it the folder for portability related files or it means it contains stat pots in it which you normally need to beat the boss in some particular dungeons to obtain them?

    Looking on google it doesnt have a proper description of its uses (mentions of language support and policy) so I guess its just random IDE garbage.

    I found it. It's portable object used by gnu gettext utilities.
