QUERYLOCALE(3)						   BSD Library Functions Manual 					    QUERYLOCALE(3)

NAME
querylocale -- Get locale name for a specified category SYNOPSIS
#include <xlocale.h> const char * querylocale(int mask, locale_t loc); DESCRIPTION
Returns the name of the locale for the category specified by mask. The mask is scanned starting at the least significant bit, until the first set bit is found. This happens to scan the categories alphabetically, not including LC_ALL_MASK, but it is best to specify one category at a time. The available categories are documented in xlocale(3) and newlocale(3). SEE ALSO

NEWLOCALE(3)						   BSD Library Functions Manual 					      NEWLOCALE(3)

NAME
newlocale -- Create a new locale SYNOPSIS
#include <xlocale.h> locale_t newlocale(int mask, const char * locale, locale_t base); DESCRIPTION
Creates a new locale_t based off the locale specified by base. The categories specified by mask will be replaced to correspond with the named locale. The mask is the logical OR of the following: LC_COLLATE_MASK Collation LC_CTYPE_MASK Character type LC_MESSAGES_MASK Messages LC_MONETARY_MASK Monetary LC_NUMERIC_MASK Numeric LC_TIME_MASK Time LC_ALL_MASK The logical OR of all of the above The locale string is typically the name of one of the directories in /usr/share/locale. If locale is NULL, then the C locale is used. If locale is an empty string, then it will look for environment variables: LC_ALL, then LC_* if the corresponding LC_*_MASK bit is set, then the LANG environment variable. If none of these are found, it will default to the C locale. If base is NULL, the current locale is used. If base is LC_GLOBAL_LOCALE, the global locale is used. If mask is LC_ALL_MASK, base is ignored. In order to create a C locale_t value, use newlocale(LC_ALL_MASK, NULL, NULL). RETURN VALUES
Returns a new locale_t, or NULL in case of error. New locales should be freed with freelocale(3). SEE ALSO
