Standard C++ Locales

Standard C++ Locales  
ABSTRACT
 
The Standard C++ Library includes a framework for internationalisation of C++ programs in form of locales and facets. The locale framework is used by the standard stream I/O classes for internationalised I/O, but is designed to be of more general use. The standard facets provide support for culture dependent formats of date and time, monetary amounts, language-dependent sorting of strings, and other culture-dependencies. In addition to the standard facilities, the locale framework is extensible and can serve as a vehicle for special-purpose culture-dependencies such as address formats, shoe sizes, or temperature-, measure-, or currency conversions.

In this tutorial we will explore the standard facets and will learn how to add user-defined internationalisation services to the standard locale framework.
