Defined in header <locale.h>
struct lconv;

The struct lconv contains numeric and monetary formatting rules as defined by a C locale. Objects of this struct may be obtained with localeconv. The members of lconv are values of type char and of type char*. Each char* member except decimal_point may be pointing at a null character (that is, at an empty C-string). The members of type char are all non-negative numbers, any of which may be CHAR_MAX if the corresponding value is not available in the current C locale.

[edit] Member objects

[edit] Non-monetary numeric formatting parameters

char* decimal_point
the character used as the decimal point
(public member object)
char* thousands_sep

(public member object)

[edit] Monetary numeric formatting parameters

char* mon_decimal_point

(public member object)

[edit] Local monetary numeric formatting parameters

char* currency_symbol
the symbol used for currency in the current C locale
(public member object)
char frac_digits
the number of digits after the decimal point to display in a monetary quantity
(public member object)
char p_cs_precedes
1 if currency_symbol is placed before non-negative value, 0 if after
(public member object)
char n_cs_precedes
1 if currency_symbol is placed before negative value, 0 if after
(public member object)
char p_sep_by_space
indicates the separation of currency_symbol, positive_sign, and the non-negative monetary value
(public member object)
char n_sep_by_space
indicates the separation of currency_symbol, negative_sign, and the negative monetary value
(public member object)
char p_sign_posn
indicates the position of positive_sign in a non-negative monetary value
(public member object)
char n_sign_posn
indicates the position of negative_sign in a negative monetary value
(public member object)

[edit] International monetary numeric formatting parameters

char* int_curr_symbol
the string used as international currency name in the current C locale
(public member object)
char int_frac_digits
the number of digits after the decimal point to display in an international monetary quantity
(public member object)
char int_p_cs_precedes
1 if currency_symbol is placed before non-negative international monetary value, 0 if after
(public member object)
char int_n_cs_precedes
1 if currency_symbol is placed before negative international monetary value, 0 if after
(public member object)
char int_p_sep_by_space
indicates the separation of currency_symbol, positive_sign, and the non-negative international monetary value
(public member object)
char int_n_sep_by_space
indicates the separation of currency_symbol, negative_sign, and the negative international monetary value
(public member object)
char int_p_sign_posn
indicates the position of positive_sign in a non-negative international monetary value
(public member object)
char int_n_sign_posn
indicates the position of negative_sign in a negative international monetary value
(public member object)


The characters of the C-strings pointed to by grouping and mon_grouping are interpreted according to their numeric values. When the terminating '\0' is encountered, the last value seen is assumed to repeat for the remainder of digits. If CHAR_MAX is encountered, no further digits are grouped. the typical grouping of three digits at a time is "\003".

The values of p_sep_by_space, n_sep_by_space, int_p_sep_by_space, int_n_sep_by_space are interpreted as follows:

0 no space separates the currency symbol and the value
1 sign sticks to the currency symbol, value is separated by a space
2 sign sticks to the value. Currency symbol is separated by a space

The values of p_sign_posn, n_sign_posn, int_p_sign_posn, int_n_sign_posn are interpreted as follows:

0 parentheses around the value and the currency symbol are used to represent the sign
1 sign before the value and the currency symbol
2 sign after the value and the currency symbol
3 sign before the currency symbol
4 sign after the currency symbol
