    Command:

    bind_textdomain_codeset

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           #include <libintl.h>
    
           char * bind_textdomain_codeset (const char * domainname,
                                           const char * codeset);
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           The  bind_textdomain_codeset  function sets the output codeset for mes-
           sage catalogs for domain domainname.
    
           A message domain is a set  of  translatable  msgid  messages.  Usually,
           every software package has its own message domain.
    
           By default, the gettext family of functions returns translated messages
           in the locale's character encoding, which can be retrieved as  nl_lang-
           info(CODESET).  The need for calling bind_textdomain_codeset arises for
           programs which store strings in a locale independent way (e.g.   UTF-8)
           and  want  to  avoid  an extra character set conversion on the returned
           translated messages.
    
           domainname must be a non-empty string.
    
           If codeset is not NULL, it must be a valid encoding name which  can  be
           used  for the iconv_open function. The bind_textdomain_codeset function
           sets the output  codeset  for  message  catalogs  belonging  to  domain
           domainname  to  codeset.  The  function  makes  copies  of the argument
           strings as needed.
    
           If codeset is NULL, the function returns the previously set codeset for
           domain domainname. The default is NULL, denoting the locale's character
           encoding.
    
    
    

    RETURN VALUE

           If successful, the bind_textdomain_codeset function returns the current
           codeset  for domain domainname, after possibly changing it. The result-
           ing string is valid until the next bind_textdomain_codeset call for the
           same  domainname and must not be modified or freed. If a memory alloca-
           tion failure occurs, it sets errno to ENOMEM and returns  NULL.  If  no
           codeset has been set for domain domainname, it returns NULL.
    
    
    

    ERRORS

           The following error can occur, among others:
    
           ENOMEM Not enough memory available.
    
    
    

    BUGS

           The  return type ought to be const char *, but is char * to avoid warn-
           ings in C code predating ANSI C.
