TEXTDOMAIN(3)		   Library Functions Manual		 TEXTDOMAIN(3)

NAME
       textdomain - set	domain for future gettext() calls

SYNOPSIS
       #include	<libintl.h>

       char * textdomain (const	char * domainname);

DESCRIPTION
       The textdomain function sets or retrieves the current message domain.

       A  message domain is a set of translatable msgid	messages. Usually, ev-
       ery software package has	its own	message	domain.	 The  domain  name  is
       used to determine the message catalog where a translation is looked up;
       it must be a non-empty string.

       The current message domain is used by the gettext, ngettext  functions,
       and by the dgettext, dcgettext, dngettext and dcngettext	functions when
       called with a NULL domainname argument.

       If domainname is	not NULL, the current message domain is	set to domain-
       name.  The  string  the function	stores internally is a copy of the do-
       mainname	argument.

       If domainname is	NULL, the function returns the current message domain.

RETURN VALUE
       If successful, the textdomain function returns the current message  do-
       main,  after  possibly changing it. The resulting string	is valid until
       the next	textdomain call	and must not be	modified or freed. If a	memory
       allocation failure occurs, it sets errno	to ENOMEM and returns NULL.

ERRORS
       The following error can occur, among others:

       ENOMEM Not enough memory	available.

BUGS
       The  return type	ought to be const char *, but is char *	to avoid warn-
       ings in C code predating	ANSI C.
