Been trying to update some really old C++ piece of code.
And all the comments and variable names are in FR*NCH.
Apparently they didn't had accents in the keyboards back then, because they used stars instead.
Makes it really hard to tell commented code from French comments.

Obs: I don't speak nor can read French. Neither does anyone in my team.

    Use chat Gpt to auto convert the comments back.

    Run a diff on the input and output to ensure no tomfoolery happened

    @ostream The hardest part is that half the written stuff is silent! But i do agree that german is fuckin strange because the pronouns of a word can change randomly depending on contex.

    @ostream it's actually quite wasteful to write down a lot of stuff you don't even need

    @galena 2 decades ago they simplified the written german to make it easier logical.
