    dgettext

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           #include <libintl.h>
    
           char * gettext (const char * msgid);
           char * dgettext (const char * domainname, const char * msgid);
           char * dcgettext (const char * domainname, const char * msgid,
                             int category);
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           The  gettext,  dgettext  and dcgettext functions attempt to translate a
           text string into the user's native language, by looking up the transla-
           tion in a message catalog.
    
           The  msgid argument identifies the message to be translated. By conven-
           tion, it is the English version of the message, with non-ASCII  charac-
           ters  replaced by ASCII approximations. This choice allows the transla-
           tors to work with message catalogs, called PO files, that contain  both
           the  English  and  the  translated versions of each message, and can be
           installed using the msgfmt utility.
    
           A message domain is a set  of  translatable  msgid  messages.  Usually,
           every  software  package has its own message domain. The domain name is
           used to determine the message catalog where the translation  is  looked
           up;  it  must  be  a  non-empty string. For the gettext function, it is
           specified through a preceding textdomain call.  For  the  dgettext  and
           dcgettext  functions,  it is passed as the domainname argument; if this
           argument is NULL, the domain name specified through a preceding textdo-
           main call is used instead.
    
           Translation  lookup  operates in the context of the current locale. For
           the gettext and dgettext functions, the  LC_MESSAGES  locale  facet  is
           used.  It  is determined by a preceding call to the setlocale function.
           setlocale(LC_ALL,"") initializes the LC_MESSAGES locale  based  on  the
           first nonempty value of the three environment variables LC_ALL, LC_MES-
           SAGES, LANG; see setlocale(3). For the dcgettext function,  the  locale
           facet  is  determined  by the category argument, which should be one of
           the LC_xxx  constants  defined  in  the  <locale.h>  header,  excluding
           LC_ALL. In both cases, the functions also use the LC_CTYPE locale facet
           in order to convert the translated message from the translator's  code-
           set  to the current locale's codeset, unless overridden by a prior call
           to the bind_textdomain_codeset function.
    
           The  message  catalog  used  by  the  functions  is  at  the   pathname
           dirname/locale/category/domainname.mo.  Here  dirname  is the directory
           specified through bindtextdomain. Its default is system and  configura-
           tion  dependent;  typically  it is prefix/share/locale, where prefix is
           the installation prefix of the package. locale is the name of the  cur-
           rent  locale  facet; the GNU implementation also tries generalizations,
           such as the language name  without  the  territory  name.  category  is
           LC_MESSAGES  for  the  gettext  and dgettext functions, or the argument
           passed to the dcgettext function.
    
           is returned.
    
    
    

    ERRORS

           errno is not modified.
    
    
    

    BUGS

           The  return type ought to be const char *, but is char * to avoid warn-
           ings in C code predating ANSI C.
    
           When an empty string is used for msgid,  the  functions  may  return  a
           nonempty string.
