gettxt(3C)																gettxt(3C)

gettxt() - read text string from message file SYNOPSIS
The routine retrieves a text string from a message file for the current locale. msg_id has the following syntax: where msgfilename is the name of the message file generated by mkmsgs(1). If msgfilename is NULL, uses the message file specified in the last call to setcat(3C). msgnumber is the sequence number of the text string in the message file (the sequence begins at 1). returns the message under any of the following conditions: o msgfilename is an invalid message catalog name. o No catalog is specified in msg_id or through setcat(3C). o msgnumber is not a positive number. o No message could be retrieved and def_str is NULL. EXTERNAL INFLUENCES
Environment Variables uses the environment variable to determine the locale to use to search for the msgfilename message file. If is not set, the environment variable is used. If is not set, the "C" locale will be used. The user can also change the locale via the setlocale(3C) routine. If the msgfilename message file is not found in the specified locale or if the msgnumber is out of bounds, attempts to retrieve the text string from the "C" locale. def_str is the string returned if a text string cannot be retrieved even from the "C" locale.
