std::localeconv: std::localeconv

NAME

std::localeconv - std::localeconv

Synopsis


Defined in header <clocale>
std::lconv* localeconv();


The localeconv function obtains a pointer to a static object of type std::lconv, which represents numeric and monetary formatting rules of the current C locale.

Parameters


(none)

Return value


Pointer to the current std::lconv object.

Notes


Modifying the object references through the returned pointer is undefined behavior.
std::localeconv modifies a static object, calling it from different threads without synchronization is undefined behavior.

Example


// Run this code


  #include <clocale>
  #include <iostream>


  int main()
  {
      std::setlocale(LC_ALL, "ja_JP.UTF-8");
      std::lconv* lc = std::localeconv();
      std::cout << "Japanese currency symbol: " << lc->currency_symbol
                << '(' << lc->int_curr_symbol << ")\n";
  }

Output:


  Japanese currency symbol: ¥(JPY )
