std::moneypunct<CharT,International>::curr_symbol,do_curr_symbol - std::moneypunct<CharT,International>::curr_symbol,do_curr_symbol


Defined in header <locale>
public: (1)
string_type curr_symbol() const;
protected: (2)
virtual string_type do_curr_symbol() const;

1) Public member function, calls the member function do_curr_symbol of the most derived class.
2) Returns the string used as the currency identifier by this locale. If International (the second template parameter of std::moneypunct) is false, the identifier is usually a single (wide) character, such as "¥" or "$". If International is true, the identifier is usually a four-character string holding the three-character ISO_4217 currency code followed by a space ("JPY " or "USD ")

Return value

The object of type string_type holding the currency symbol or code.
