ISO8859-1 implementation

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.

Table 1-7 Default ISO8859-1 locales

Symbol Description
__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.
