TimeTool: Export Options

Cratchit.org TimeTool for Windows is a quick and easy way to keep track of the time you spend on multiple projects. Unfortunately for users outside the United States, it only supports the English language at the present time. Some feedback from European users (I didn't know there were any)indicated that they had a problem exporting to CSV in their locale. I've added a little mod to help those users. Click File | Options (or press Ctrl-Alt-O) to bring up the new options dialog and change the delimiter characters to whatever you need. (See Figure 1.) I'm told that the results work well.

Note that I do not use the Windows localization for these settings because, as it stands, Cratchit.org TimeTool can be re-compiled under Kylix for use on Linux boxes. Cross-platform compatibility is far more important to me than OS "integration", so don't look for that feature... ever.
