nl_langinfo(3) [freebsd man page]

NL_LANGINFO(3)						   BSD Library Functions Manual 					    NL_LANGINFO(3)

NAME
nl_langinfo -- language information LIBRARY
Standard C Library (libc, -lc) SYNOPSIS
#include <langinfo.h> char * nl_langinfo(nl_item item); char * nl_langinfo_l(nl_item item, locale_t loc); DESCRIPTION
The nl_langinfo() function returns a pointer to a string containing information relevant to the particular language or cultural area defined in the program or thread's locale, or in the case of nl_langinfo_l(), the locale passed as the second argument. The manifest constant names and values of item are defined in <langinfo.h>. Calls to setlocale() with a category corresponding to the category of item, or to the category LC_ALL, may overwrite the buffer pointed to by the return value. RETURN VALUES
In a locale where langinfo data is not defined, nl_langinfo() returns a pointer to the corresponding string in the POSIX locale. nl_langinfo_l() returns the same values as nl_langinfo(). In all locales, nl_langinfo() returns a pointer to an empty string if item con- tains an invalid setting. EXAMPLES
For example: nl_langinfo(ABDAY_1) would return a pointer to the string "Dom" if the identified language was Portuguese, and "Sun" if the identified language was English. SEE ALSO
setlocale(3) STANDARDS
The nl_langinfo() function conforms to Version 2 of the Single UNIX Specification (``SUSv2''). The nl_langinfo_l() function conforms to IEEE Std 1003.1-2008 (``POSIX.1''). HISTORY
The nl_langinfo() function first appeared in FreeBSD 4.6. BSD

NAME
nl_langinfo, nl_langinfo_l -- language information LIBRARY
Standard C Library (libc, -lc) SYNOPSIS
#include <langinfo.h> char * nl_langinfo(nl_item item); #include <langinfo.h> #include <xlocale.h> char * nl_langinfo_l(nl_item item, locale_t loc); DESCRIPTION
The nl_langinfo() function returns a pointer to a string containing information relevant to the particular language or cultural area defined in the program's locale. The manifest constant names and values of item are defined in <langinfo.h>. Calls to setlocale() with a category corresponding to the category of item, or to the category LC_ALL, may overwrite the buffer pointed to by the return value. RETURN VALUES
In a locale where langinfo data is not defined, nl_langinfo() returns a pointer to the corresponding string in the POSIX locale. In all locales, nl_langinfo() returns a pointer to an empty string if item contains an invalid setting. EXAMPLES
For example: nl_langinfo(ABDAY_1) would return a pointer to the string "Dom" if the identified language was Portuguese, and "Sun" if the identified language was English. While the nl_langinfo() function uses the current locale, the nl_langinfo_l() function may be passed a locale directly. See xlocale(3) for more information. SEE ALSO
