LIBINTL(3LIB) Interface Libraries LIBINTL(3LIB)


NAME


libintl - internationalization library

SYNOPSIS


cc [ flag... ] file... -lintl [ library... ]
#include <libintl.h>
#include <locale.h> /* needed for dcgettext() only */


DESCRIPTION


Historically, functions in this library provided wide character
translations. This functionality now resides in libc(3LIB).


This library is maintained to provide backward compatibility for both
runtime and compilation environments. The shared object is implemented as
a filter on libc.so.1. New application development need not specify
-lintl.

INTERFACES


The shared object libintl.so.1 provides the public interfaces defined
below. See Intro(3) for additional information on shared object
interfaces.
