Locale::gettext_pp - Pure Perl Implementation of Uniforum Message Translation
use gettext_pp (:locale_h :libintl_h); gettext $msgid; dgettext $domainname, $msgid; dcgettext $domainname, $msgid, LC_MESSAGES; ngettext $msgid, $msgid_plural, $count; dngettext $domainname, $msgid, $msgid_plural, $count; dcngettext $domainname, $msgid, $msgid_plural, $count, LC_MESSAGES; textdomain $domainname; bindtextdomain $domainname, $directory; bind_textdomain_codeset $domainname, $encoding; my $category = LC_CTYPE; my $category = LC_NUMERIC; my $category = LC_TIME; my $category = LC_COLLATE; my $category = LC_MONETARY; my $category = LC_MESSAGES; my $category = LC_ALL;
The module Locale::gettext_pp is the low-level interface to message translation according to the Uniforum approach that is for example used in GNU gettext and Sun's Solaris.
Normally you should not use this module directly, but the high level interface Locale::TextDomain(3) that provides a much simpler interface. This description is therefore deliberately kept brief. Please refer to the GNU gettext documentation available at http://www.gnu.org/manual/gettext/ for in-depth and background information on the topic.
The module exports by default nothing. Every function has to be imported explicitely or via an export tag ("EXPORT TAGS").
You can (maybe) get the same constants from POSIX(3); see there for a detailed description
See "CONSTANTS" in Locale::Messages for more information.
This module does not export anything unless explicitely requested. You can import groups of functions via two tags:
Imports the functions that are normally defined in the C include file locale.h:
Imports the locale category constants:
