NAME
     catgets — retrieve string from message catalog

LIBRARY
     Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <nl_types.h>

     char *
     catgets(nl_catd catd, int set_id, int msg_id, const char *s);

DESCRIPTION
     The catgets() function attempts to retrieve message msg_id of set set_id
     from the message catalog referenced by the descriptor catd.  The argument
     s points to a default message which is returned if the function is unable
     to retrieve the specified message.

RETURN VALUES
     If the specified message was retrieved successfully, catgets() returns a
     pointer to an internal buffer containing the message string; otherwise it
     returns s.

ERRORS
     [EBADF]		The catd argument is not a valid message catalog
			descriptor.

     [EBADMSG]		The message identified by set_id and msg_id is not in
			the message catalog.

SEE ALSO
     gencat(1), catclose(3), catopen(3)

STANDARDS
     The catgets() function conforms to IEEE Std 1003.1-2001 (“POSIX.1”).
