When you want to format a number or a currency amount using the
conventions of the current locale, you can use the function
localeconv to get the data on how to do it. The function
localeconv is declared in the header file `locale.h'.
localeconvfunction returns a pointer to a structure whose components contain information about how numeric and monetary values should be formatted in the current locale.
You shouldn't modify the structure or its contents. The structure might
be overwritten by subsequent calls to
localeconv, or by calls to
setlocale, but no other function in the library overwrites this
If a member of the structure
struct lconv has type
and the value is
CHAR_MAX, it means that the current locale has
no value for that parameter.
