1.9.5 LC_COLLATE data block

The LC_COLLATE data block configures collation of strings.

When defining a locale data block in the C library, the macros that define an LC_COLLATE data block are as follows:

  1. Call LC_COLLATE_begin with a symbol name and a locale name.

  2. Call one of the following alternative macros:

    • Call LC_COLLATE_table repeatedly to specify 256 table entries. LC_COLLATE_table takes a single argument in quotes. This must be a comma-separated list of table entries. Each table entry describes one of the 256 possible characters, and can be a number indicating its position in the sorting order. For example, if character A is intended to sort before B, then entry 65 (corresponding to A) in the table, must be smaller than entry 66 (corresponding to B).

    • Call LC_COLLATE_no_table without arguments. This indicates that the collation order is the same as the string comparison order. Therefore, strcoll() and strcmp() are identical.

  3. Call LC_COLLATE_end, without arguments, to finish the locale block definition.
