Locale Categories 


#include <locale.h>

Locale categories are manifest constants used by the localization routines to specify which portion of a program's locale information will be used. The locale refers to the locality (or Country/Region) for which certain aspects of your program can be customized. Locale-dependent areas include, for example, the formatting of dates or the display format for monetary values.
