in reply to Perl, Gtk2 and locale — a bit of a mess

The documentation of POSIX uses a different way to refer to locale subtypes: constants.
perl -we 'use locale; use POSIX; POSIX::setlocale(POSIX::LC_NUMERIC, " +hu_HU.UTF-8"); printf qq{%f\n}, 123.456;'

Note: Tested with cs_CZ locale, as hu_HU is not installed here.

    Yeah, sorry, just noticed that; if anything it doesn't change a thing.

    More precisely, this is what happens in the code now:

    use POSIX qw/strftime setlocale/; BEGIN { ## To hopefully make it happen way before Gtk2 init setlocale(POSIX::LC_ALL(), "en_US.UTF-8"); } use Glib qw/FALSE TRUE/; use Gtk2 -init;

    And on my coworker’s computer (who uses Hungarian locale to begin with, on Fedora, GTK 3 desktop), we get commas, on my computer (English locale, KDE desktop, but in the shell the locale is set to Hungarian) we get periods.

    Except this is only with the software we’re making. The example one-liners above work identically on both machines.
