|0001679||[Issue 8 drafts] Shell and Utilities||Editorial||Clarification Requested||2023-04-21 10:00||2023-07-03 11:00|
|Priority||normal||Resolution||Accepted As Marked|

|Final Accepted Text||See Note: 0006324.|
|Summary||0001679: strictly increasing order vs. monotonic|
"the application shall ensure that the statement containing the msgid directive is immediately followed by a msgid_plural directive and that each statement containing a msgid_plural directive is followed by count statements containing msgstr[index] directives, starting with msgstr and ending with msgstr[count−1] in monotonically increasing order."
Shouldn't the requirement on the application be that it shall use a _strictly_ increasing order?
If not, and if "monotonically" is truly meant, should something about which statements with duplicate indices shall prevail?
My understanding is that in computer science applications, we can generally read "monotonically increasing" as a synonym for "nondecreasing". But often what we mean is "strictly increasing".
Unfortunately I lack the training to venture an opinion on whether, say, the Weierstrass function W(x) is monotonically increasing in the neighborhood of x. But I think I know enough to say that I'm sure I'd get into trouble before properly studying real analysis.
