Locales and Facets

  • Ray Lischner


As you saw in Exploration 18, C++ offers a complicated system to support internationalization and localization of your code. Even if you don’t intend to ship translations of your program in a multitude of languages, you must understand the locale mechanism that C++ uses. Indeed, you have been using it all along, because C++ always sends formatted I/O through the locale system. This Exploration will help you understand locales better and make more effective use of them in your programs.
