GETFINT C-3


NAME



getfint - get format for INT values

SYNOPSIS



#include

char *getfint()

DESCRIPTION



Getfint returns a pointer to a string containing the format for
INT values. This format string is used by atolong(C-3) and
longtoa(C-3). In addition, several of the C/Base programs use
this string for formatting INT values.

The first format specifier is for positive (>0) values. The
second is for negative (<0) values and the third is for zero
values. In the absence of the second or third specifiers, the
first specifier is used for the corresponding class of values.

The INT format string is retrieved from the country format
structure (see fcountry(C-3)).

NOTES



The value returned points to static data shared among all of the
get format routines and is overwritten with each call.
