Detailed Description

       Container class for localization functionality.

       The locale class is first a class wrapper for C library locales. It is also an extensible
       container for user-defined localization. A locale is a collection of facets that implement
       various localization features such as money, time, and number printing.

       Constructing C++ locales does not change the C library locale.

       This library supports efficient construction and copying of locales through a reference
       counting implementation of the locale class.

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

   std::locale::locale ()  throw ()
       Default constructor. Constructs a copy of the global locale. If no locale has been
       explicitly set, this is the 'C' locale.

   std::locale::locale (const locale &__other)  throw ()
       Copy constructor. Constructs a copy of other.

       Parameters:
           other The locale to copy.

   std::locale::locale (const char *__s) [explicit]
       Named locale constructor. Constructs a copy of the named C library locale.

       Parameters:
           s Name of the locale to construct.

       Exceptions:
           std::runtime_error if s is null or an undefined locale.

   std::locale::locale (const locale &__base, const char *__s, category__cat)
       Construct locale with facets from another locale. Constructs a copy of the locale base.
       The facets specified by cat are replaced with those from the locale named by s. If base is
       named, this locale instance will also be named.

       Parameters:
           base The locale to copy.
           s Name of the locale to use facets from.
           cat Set of categories defining the facets to use from s.

       Exceptions:
           std::runtime_error if s is null or an undefined locale.

   std::locale::locale (const locale &__base, const locale &__add, category__cat)
       Construct locale with facets from another locale. Constructs a copy of the locale base.
       The facets specified by cat are replaced with those from the locale add. If base and add
       are named, this locale instance will also be named.

       Parameters:
           base The locale to copy.
           add The locale to use facets from.
           cat Set of categories defining the facets to use from add.

   template<typename _Facet > std::locale::locale (const locale &__other, _Facet *__f)
       Construct locale with another facet. Constructs a copy of the locale other. The facet  is
       added to , replacing an existing facet of type Facet if there is one. If  is null, this
       locale is a copy of other.

       Parameters:
           other The locale to copy.
           f The facet to add in.

       Definition at line 43 of file locale_classes.tcc.

   std::locale::~locale ()  throw ()
       Locale destructor.

Member Function Documentation

   static const locale& std::locale::classic () [static]
       Return reference to the 'C' locale.

   template<typename _Facet > locale std::locale::combine (const locale &__other) const
       Construct locale with another facet. Constructs and returns a new copy of this locale.
       Adds or replaces an existing facet of type Facet from the locale other into the new
       locale.

       Parameters:
           Facet The facet type to copy from other
           other The locale to copy from.

       Returns:
           Newly constructed locale.

       Exceptions:
           std::runtime_error if other has no facet of type Facet.

       Definition at line 61 of file locale_classes.tcc.

   static locale std::locale::global (const locale &) [static]
       Set global locale. This function sets the global locale to the argument and returns a copy
       of the previous global locale. If the argument has a name, it will also call
       std::setlocale(LC_ALL, loc.name()).

       Parameters:
           locale The new locale to make global.

       Returns:
           Copy of the old global locale.

   string std::locale::name () const
       Return locale name. Returns:
           Locale name or '*' if unnamed.

   bool std::locale::operator!= (const locale &__other) const  throw () [inline]
       Locale inequality. Parameters:
           other The locale to compare against.

       Returns:
           ! (*this == other)

       Definition at line 233 of file locale_classes.h.

   template<typename _Char , typename _Traits , typename _Alloc > bool std::locale::operator()
       (const basic_string< _Char, _Traits, _Alloc > &__s1, const basic_string< _Char, _Traits,
       _Alloc > &__s2) const
       Compare two strings according to collate. Template operator to compare two strings using
       the compare function of the collate facet in this locale. One use is to provide the locale
       to the sort function. For example, a vector v of strings could be sorted according to
       locale loc by doing:

         std::sort(v.begin(), v.end(), loc);

       Parameters:
           s1 First string to compare.
           s2 Second string to compare.

       Returns:
           True if collate<Char> facet compares s1 < s2, else false.

   const locale& std::locale::operator= (const locale &__other)  throw ()
       Assignment operator. Set this locale to be a copy of other.

       Parameters:
           other The locale to copy.

       Returns:
           A reference to this locale.

   bool std::locale::operator== (const locale &__other) const  throw ()
       Locale equality. Parameters:
           other The locale to compare against.

       Returns:
           True if other and this refer to the same locale instance, are copies, or have the same
           name. False otherwise.

Friends And Related Function Documentation

   template<typename _Facet > bool has_facet (const locale &)  throw () [friend]
       Test for the presence of a facet. has_facet tests the locale argument for the presence of
       the facet type provided as the template parameter. Facets derived from the facet parameter
       will also return true.

       Parameters:
           Facet The facet type to test the presence of.
           locale The locale to test.

       Returns:
           true if locale contains a facet of type Facet, else false.

   template<typename _Facet > const _Facet& use_facet (const locale &) [friend]
       Return a facet. use_facet looks for and returns a reference to a facet of type Facet where
       Facet is the template parameter. If has_facet(locale) is true, there is a suitable facet
       to return. It throws std::bad_cast if the locale doesn't contain a facet of type Facet.

       Parameters:
           Facet The facet type to access.
           locale The locale to use.

       Returns:
           Reference to facet of type Facet.

       Exceptions:
           std::bad_cast if locale doesn't contain a facet of type Facet.
