It seems that this function requires the gettext module, I assume this is php-gettext.dll this is not shipped with 4.3.8. My test code work OK on Linux fails on Windows. Any suggestions? I am using 4.3.8 becasue it is the same version as My ISP is using.

There is fix in bug report #18693 but the download link is bad

Reproduce code:
// Set language to German
setlocale(LC_ALL, 'de_DE');

// Specify location of translation tables
bindtextdomain("myPHPApp", "./locale");

// Choose domain

// Translation is looking for in ./locale/de_DE/LC_MESSAGES/ now

// Print a test message
echo gettext("Welcome to My PHP Application");

// Or use the alias _() for gettext()
echo _("Have a nice day");

Expected result:
Dsiplay some text

Actual result:
Fatal error: Call to undefined function: bindtextdomain() in F:\Inetpub\wwwroot\test\bind.php on line 6

You can use 4.3.9RC1 until 4.3.9 final is released.
