For Comma Test Publisher's description


Comma Test is a Home & Education software developed by Wim Bolkensteyn. After our trial and test, the software is proved to be official, secure and free. Here is the official description for Comma Test:

This is the most stupid program I've ever made. It is to demonstrate the "Decimal Symbol" problem. You can change the decimal symbol "on the fly". Enter the number with the comma and try to read back with the decimal point.
Well, it does not work properly in that way. Please try it out. It is made with Delphi 4 and the source code can be downloaded. The program was made to demonstrate a problem with a Motion Control Windows program made in the USA. This program runs only correct on computer where the decimal symbol is the POINT.

The problem is most common in Germany and France. Many customers lost several days before they solved the problem. Some of them were very frustrated and angry. After losing several days, they call me, and then changing the decimal symbol in Windows solved the problem.

Not all customers do accept this. They say that the software must be working on their computer with the standard European (comma) setting.

Some problems:

First MOVE of a Stepper Motor takes one week
Machine runs good for a few years then some one makes a small change in the configuration; machine crashes complete, with some mechanical damage, etc.
Canadian machine with MX2000 goes to France. Small modification in set-up required. With the engineer from the Canadian factory on the phone the French man made whole machine out of order; nothing worked anymore. Engineer came from Canada with his own laptop and solved the problem in just a few minutes.
