<locale.h> Localization

A compiler can define one or more sets of parameters, called locales, that define local conventions of nationality, culture, and language and that affect such things as the formatting of program output. The local.h header provides types, macros, and functions that allow a locale to be selected and utilized. The locale in effect is called the current locale.

Attention: This header is not implemented when building with MPLAB XC8 for PIC MCUs. Only the default "C" locale is supported for all other devices and compilers.
