= Build C++11 =

autoreconf -i
make check

# test it

src/spellout -l en 123

= Build Java jar =

cd java

= Build and using LibreOffice Extension =

make -f Makefile.orig lo

and install the *.oxt package by
Tools->Extension Manager->Add of LibreOffice.

After restarting, there are
two new Calc functions,



Module Help (enlarge the row to see all lines), containing
available prefix functions of the module:

= NUMBERTEXT("help")
= NUMBERTEXT("help";"de")

= Development =

See doc/addnewlocale.txt and doc/sorosspec.odt

For general Calc and (portable Excel) Add-In developments, see
Jan Holst Jensen's excellent Add-in example and documentation:

== Integrated development environment ==

There is a JavaScript/HTML IDE in this distribution. 

Use the online version: or
build it with

make -f Makefile.orig

and open web/webroot/Soros.html in a JavaScript capable browser,

= Test =

make -f Makefile.orig check

test/thaicheck.ods is a simple test of the equivalence of
the Soros implementation of Thai number to number name conversion
and BAHTTEXT function.
