       catgets - get message from a message catalog

       #include <nl_types.h>

       char *catgets(nl_catd catalog, int set_number, int message_number, const char *message);

       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 applica-
       tion if it is to be saved or modified. The return string is always terminated with a  null

       On  success,  catgets()	returns a pointer to an internal buffer area containing the null-
       terminated message string.  On failure, catgets() returns the value message.

       These functions are only available in libc.so.4.4.4c  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
       message catalog is available but does not contain the specified message.  These two possi-
       ble error returns seem to be discarded in XPG4.2 in favour of always returning message.
