Hi all!

Following the guide at,
I'm trying to i18n a Rails application. However, when executing 'rake
updatepo', I get the following error message:

    "numeric literal without digits"

Searching Google and the mailing list archives yields only two hints.
(1) install ruby 1.8.4 and (2) make sure there's an empty line at the
end of each file. Although I can't seem to find the sense in the second
one, I've made sure my environment complies with both.

The error message still doesn't go away... I'd be darn grateful for any
pointers that you might have :-)

Best regards from Germany,
