NAME

       nl_types.h - data types

SYNOPSIS

       #include <nl_types.h>

DESCRIPTION

       The  <nl_types.h>  header  shall  contain  definitions  of at least the
       following types:

       nl_catd
              Used by the message catalog functions catopen(), catgets(),  and
              catclose() to identify a catalog descriptor.

       nl_item
              Used  by  nl_langinfo()  to  identify  items  of  langinfo data.
              Values of objects of type nl_item are defined in <langinfo.h> .

       The <nl_types.h> header shall  contain  definitions  of  at  least  the
       following constants:

       NL_SETD
              Used  by gencat when no $set directive is specified in a message
              text source  file;  see  the  Internationalization  Guide.  This
              constant  can  be  passed  as  the value of set_id on subsequent
              calls to catgets() (that  is,  to  retrieve  messages  from  the
              default  message  set).  The value of NL_SETD is implementation-
              defined.

       NL_CAT_LOCALE
              Value that must be passed as the oflag argument to catopen()  to
              ensure that message catalog selection depends on the LC_MESSAGES
              locale category, rather than directly on  the  LANG  environment
              variable.

       The following shall be declared as functions and may also be defined as
       macros. Function prototypes shall be provided.

              int       catclose(nl_catd);
              char     *catgets(nl_catd, int, int, const char *);
              nl_catd   catopen(const char *, int);

       The following sections are informative.
