nl_types.h, nl_types - native language data types SYNOPSIS
#include <nl_types.h> DESCRIPTION
This header contains the following definitions: nl_catd Used by the message catalog functions catopen, catgets and catclose to identify a catalog. nl_item Used by nl_langinfo to identify items of langinfo data. Values for objects of type nl_item are defined in <langinfo.h>. NL_SETD Used by gencat when no $set directive is specified in a message text source file. This constant can be used in subsequent calls to catgets as the value of the set identifier parameter. NL_MGSMAX Maximum number of messages per set. NL_SETMAX Maximum number of sets per catalog. NL_TEXTMAX Maximum size of a message. SEE ALSO

catgets - get message from a message catalog SYNOPSIS
#include <nl_types.h> char *catgets(nl_catd catalog, int set_number, int message_number, const char *message); DESCRIPTION
catgets() reads the message message_number, in set set_number, from the message catalog identified by catalog, where catalog is a catalog descriptor returned from an earlier call to catopen(3). The fourth argument message points to a default message string which will be returned by catgets() if the identified message catalog is not currently available. The message-text is contained in an internal buffer area and should be copied by the application if it is to be saved or modified. The return string is always terminated with a null byte. RETURN VALUE
On success, catgets() returns a pointer to an internal buffer area containing the null-terminated message string. On failure, catgets() returns the value message. NOTES
These functions are only available in and above. The Jan 1987 X/Open Portability Guide specifies a more subtle error return: message is returned if the message catalog specified by catalog is not available, while an empty string is returned when the mes- sage catalog is available but does not contain the specified message. These two possible error returns seem to be discarded in XPG4.2 in favour of always returning message. CONFORMING TO
