If the locale's values for p_cs_precedes and n_cs_precedes do not match,
the value of nl_langinfo(CRNCYSTR) is unspecified.


The <langinfo.h> header declares the following as a function:

char *nl_langinfo(nl_item);


Inclusion of <langinfo.h> header may also make visible all symbols from
<nl_types.h>.

USAGE


Wherever possible, users are advised to use functions compatible with
those in the ISO C standard to access items of langinfo data. In
particular, the strftime(3C) function should be used to access date and
time information defined in category LC_TIME. The localeconv(3C) function
should be used to access information corresponding to RADIXCHAR, THOUSEP,
and CRNCYSTR.
