localeconv - get numeric formatting information
struct lconv *localeconv(void);
The localeconv() function returns a pointer to a struct lconv for the current locale.
This structure is shown in locale(7), and contains all values associated with the locale
categories LC_NUMERIC and LC_MONETARY. Programs may also use the functions printf(3) and
strfmon(3), which behave according to the actual locale in use.
The localeconv() function returns a pointer to a filled in struct lconv. This structure
may be (in glibc, is) statically allocated, and may be overwritten by subsequent calls.
According to POSIX, the caller should not modify the contents of this structure. The
localeconv() function always succeeds.
Multithreading (see pthreads(7))
The localeconv() function is not thread-safe, since it returns a pointer to a structure
which might be overwritten by subsequent calls.
The printf(3) family of functions may or may not honor the current locale.
