// Run this code


  #include <iostream>
  #include <locale>


  struct space_out : std::numpunct<char> {
      char do_thousands_sep() const { return ' '; } // separate with spaces
      std::string do_grouping() const { return "\1"; } // groups of 1 digit
  };


  int main()
  {
      std::cout << "default locale: " << 12345678 << '\n';
      std::cout.imbue(std::locale(std::cout.getloc(), new space_out));
      std::cout << "locale with modified numpunct: " << 12345678 << '\n';
  }

Output:


  default locale: 12345678
  locale with modified numpunct: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
