The numeric formatting routines (for example, printf, and fprintf) have
been internationalized and give locale-sensitive results for wide character data.
Table 6-8. Numeric Formatting Routines
Converts a wide character string to a double, correctly
interpreting the radix character according to the currently
active value of the LC_NUMERIC category.
Converts a wide character string to a long.
Converts a wide character string to an unsigned long.
Date and Time
date and time routines: ctime and asctime always give
results. To get locale-sensitive results, use we sf time.
Table 6-9. Date and Time Routines
Like ctime, but accepts an optional format string
(which should be placed in a message catalog).
Returns a local time/date format string.
See "Input and Output in Internationalized Programs" for a
better understanding of time/ date format strings and their use.
