           #include <monetary.h>
           ssize_t strfmon(char *s, size_t max, const char *format, ...);


           The  strfmon()  function formats the specified amounts according to the
           format specification format and places  the  result  in  the  character
           array s of size max.
           Ordinary characters in format are copied to s without conversion.  Con-
           version specifiers are introduced by a '%' character.  Immediately fol-
           lowing it there can be zero or more of the following flags:
           =f     The  single-byte character f is used as the numeric fill charac-
                  ter (to be used with a left precision,  see  below).   When  not
                  specified, the space character is used.
           ^      Do not use any grouping characters that might be defined for the
                  current locale.  By default, grouping is enabled.
           ( or + The ( flag indicates that negative amounts  should  be  enclosed
                  between  parentheses.  The + flag indicates that signs should be
                  handled in the default way, that is, amounts are preceded by the
                  locale's sign indication, for example, nothing for positive, "-"
                  for negative.
           !      Omit the currency symbol.
           -      Left justify all fields.  The default is right justification.
           Next, there may be a field width: a decimal digit string  specifying  a
           minimum field width in bytes.  The default is 0.  A result smaller than
           this width is padded with spaces (on the left, unless the  left-justify
           flag was given).
           Next, there may be a left precision of the form "#" followed by a deci-
           mal digit string.  If the number of digits left of the radix  character
           is smaller than this, the representation is padded on the left with the
           numeric fill character.  Grouping characters are not  counted  in  this
           field width.
           Next, there may be a right precision of the form "." followed by a dec-
           imal digit string.  The amount being formatted is rounded to the speci-
           fied number of digits prior to formatting.  The default is specified in
           the frac_digits and int_frac_digits items of the  current  locale.   If
           the  right  precision  is 0, no radix character is printed.  (The radix
           character here is determined by LC_MONETARY, and may differ  from  that
           specified by LC_NUMERIC.)
           Finally,  the  conversion specification must be ended with a conversion
           character.  The three conversion characters are
           E2BIG, returns -1, and the contents of the array is undefined.

           The call
               strfmon(buf, sizeof(buf), "[%^=*#6n] [%=*#6i]",
                       1234.567, 1234.567);
               [ fl **1234,57] [ NLG  **1 234,57]
           in the Dutch locale (with fl for "florijnen" and  NLG  for  Netherlands
           Guilders).   The  grouping  character  is very ugly because it takes as
           much space as a digit, while it should not take more  than  half  that,
           and  will no doubt cause confusion.  Surprisingly, the "fl" is preceded
           and followed by a space, and "NLG" is preceded by one and  followed  by
           two  spaces.  This may be a bug in the locale files.  The Italian, Aus-
           tralian, Swiss, and Portuguese locales yield
               [ L. **1235] [ ITL  **1.235]
               [ $**1234.57] [ AUD **1,234.57]
               [Fr. **1234,57] [CHF  **1.234,57]
               [ **1234$57Esc] [ **1.234$57PTE ]
