  • I saw some style guides violations and other strangeness (++i in for loop, for example, use of xor on booleans (!= should be used),)
  • Command-line parsing should be done using getopt() and not ad-hoc code
  • It would be better to use the usual language_country naming for languages (en_US, fr_FR, etc)
  • Iterating over all languages to find the one we want to use is inefficient and useless, it is possible to create a BLanguage instance directly from the language and country code
  • The code for listing languages and for setting a language should be separate (I would make them two different functions)
