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.
