LOCALECONV(3)               Linux Programmer's Manual              LOCALECONV(3)



NAME
       localeconv - get numeric formatting information

SYNOPSIS
       #include <locale.h>

       struct lconv *localeconv(void);

DESCRIPTION
       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.

RETURN VALUE
       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.
