       gettxt() - read text string from message file

       The routine retrieves a text string from a message file for the current

       msg_id has the following syntax:

       where msgfilename  is  the  name	 of  the  message  file	 generated  by
       mkmsgs(1).   If msgfilename is NULL, uses the message file specified in
       the last call to setcat(3C).  msgnumber is the sequence number  of  the
       text string in the message file (the sequence begins at 1).

       returns the message

       under any of the following conditions:

	      ·	 msgfilename is an invalid message catalog name.

	      ·	 No catalog is specified in msg_id or through setcat(3C).

	      ·	 msgnumber is not a positive number.

	      ·	 No message could be retrieved and def_str is NULL.

   Environment Variables
       uses  the environment variable to determine the locale to use to search
       for the msgfilename message file.  If is not set, the environment vari‐
       able  is	 used.	 If is not set, the "C" locale will be used.  The user
       can also change the locale via the setlocale(3C) routine.

       If the msgfilename message file is not found in the specified locale or
       if the msgnumber is out of bounds, attempts to retrieve the text string
       from the "C" locale.  def_str is the string returned if a  text	string
       cannot be retrieved even from the "C" locale.

       The following code fragments are equivalent:
