FREELOCALE(3)	      DragonFly Library Functions Manual	 FREELOCALE(3)

NAME

freelocale -- Frees a locale created with duplocale(3) or newlocale(3)

LIBRARY

Standard C Library (libc, -lc)

SYNOPSIS

#include <xlocale.h> int freelocale(locale_t locale);

DESCRIPTION

Frees a locale_t. This relinquishes any resources held exclusively by this locale. Note that locales share reference-counted components, so a call to this function is not guaranteed to free all of the components.

RETURN VALUES

Returns 0 on success or -1 on error.

SEE ALSO

duplocale(3), localeconv(3), newlocale(3), querylocale(3), uselocale(3), xlocale(3)

STANDARDS

The freelocale() function differs from IEEE Std 1003.1-2008 (``POSIX.1'') in that its return type is int rather than void. DragonFly 3.9 September 17, 2011 DragonFly 3.9
