       intro - introduction to international subroutines

       The  internationalization package provides a convenient method of writ‐
       ing or converting applications so that they can operate in the applica‐
       tion user's natural language.

       The package consists of the following:

       ·      Tools for the creation and modification of message catalogs

       ·      An international function library, which is called libi

       ·      A	 set  of  international	 functions available in the C library,

       ·      An international compiler that creates  language	support	 data‐
	      bases from special source files

       ·      An announcement and initialization mechanism

       ·      A	 utility for converting data from one codeset to another code‐

       When you use international library functions in a C program, compile it
       with the option to include libi, as shown:
       % cc -o prog prog.c -li
       Some  of	 the  international  functions are available in the standard C
       library.	 You need not compile with the option if you  use  only	 those
       functions.   The functions that are available in the standard C library
       are and
