stringprep_locale_charset(3)	    libidn	  stringprep_locale_charset(3)

NAME
       stringprep_locale_charset - API function

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<stringprep.h>

       const char * stringprep_locale_charset( void);

ARGUMENTS
	void

DESCRIPTION
       Find  out current locale	charset.  The function respect the CHARSET en-
       vironment variable, but typically uses nl_langinfo(CODESET) when	it  is
       supported.   It	fall back on "ASCII" if	CHARSET	isn't set and nl_lang-
       info isn't supported or return anything.

       Note that this function return  the  application's  locale's  preferred
       charset (or thread's locale's preffered charset,	if your	system support
       thread-specific locales).  It does not return what the  system  may  be
       using.	Thus,  if you receive data from	external sources you cannot in
       general use this	function to guess what charset it is encoded in.   Use
       stringprep_convert  from	 the  external representation into the charset
       returned	by this	function, to have data in the locale encoding.

       Return value: Return the	character set used by the current locale.   It
       will never return NULL, but use "ASCII" as a fallback.
