The default implementation of each locale category is for the C locale. The library also provides an alternative, ISO8859-1 (Latin-1 alphabet) implementation of each locale category that you can select at link time.
The following table shows the ISO8859-1 (Latin-1 alphabet) locale categories.
|__use_iso8859_ctype||Selects the ISO8859-1 (Latin-1) classification of characters. This is essentially 7-bit ASCII, except that the character codes 160-255 represent a selection of useful European punctuation characters, letters, and accented letters.|
|__use_iso8859_collate||Selects the strcoll/strxfrm collation table appropriate to the Latin-1 alphabet. The default C locale does not require a collation table.|
|__use_iso8859_monetary||Selects the Sterling monetary category using Latin-1 coding.|
|__use_iso8859_numeric||Selects separation of thousands with commas in the printing of numeric values.|
|__use_iso8859_locale||Selects all the ISO8859-1 selections described in this table.|
There is no ISO8859-1 version of the LC_TIME category.
