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.
