PRINTF_L(3)						   BSD Library Functions Manual 					       PRINTF_L(3)

NAME
printf_l, asprintf_l, fprintf_l, snprintf_l, sprintf_l, vasprintf_l, vfprintf_l, vprintf_l, vsnprintf_l, vsprintf_l -- formatted output con- version
LIBRARY
Standard C Library (libc, -lc)
SYNOPSIS
#include <stdio.h> #include <xlocale.h> int printf_l(locale_t loc, const char * restrict format, ...); int asprintf_l(char **ret, locale_t loc, const char * format, ...); int fprintf_l(FILE * restrict stream, locale_t loc, const char * restrict format, ...); int snprintf_l(char * restrict str, size_t size, locale_t loc, const char * restrict format, ...); int sprintf_l(char * restrict str, locale_t loc, const char * restrict format, ...); int vasprintf_l(char **ret, locale_t loc, const char *format, va_list ap); int vfprintf_l(FILE * restrict stream, locale_t loc, const char * restrict format, va_list ap); int vprintf_l(locale_t loc, const char * restrict format, va_list ap); int vsnprintf_l(char * restrict str, size_t size, locale_t loc, const char * restrict format, va_list ap); int vsprintf_l(char * restrict str, locale_t loc, const char * restrict format, va_list ap);
DESCRIPTION
The above functions are used to convert formatted output in the locale loc. They behave in the same way as the versions without the _l suf- fix, but use the specified locale rather than the global or per-thread locale. See the specific manual pages for more information.
SEE ALSO
printf(3), xlocale(3)
STANDARDS
These functions do not conform to any specific standard so they should be considered as non-portable local extensions.
HISTORY
These functions first appeared in Darwin and were first implemented in FreeBSD 9.1.
