catgets()

read message from message catalog 

Function


SYNOPSIS

#include <nl_types.h>

char *catgets(nl_catd catd, int set_num, int msg_num, char *s);


DESCRIPTION

The catgets() function reads the message msg_num, in set set_num, from the message catalog identified by catd. catd is a catalog descriptor returned from an earlier call to catopen(). The s parameter points to a default message string which may be returned by catgets() if it cannot retrieve the requested message from the catalog.
