Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 73658
Using locale instead of translating currency info in redhat-config-network
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:03 EDT
I reckon that this is a dollar sign as in the currency USD.
It would probably be much better if redhat-config-network could use the locale's
currency information than having it "translated". For example, some languages
are used in more than one country and are hence used with many different
currencies, so hardcoding a default like this in the translation is probably
With this code snippet I get the currency from the locale's information on the
int main ()
setlocale (LC_ALL, "");
printf (nl_langinfo (__CURRENCY_SYMBOL));
You could probably use something similar.
If it's not used anymore, how come this is marked as notabug? If it's not a bug
anymore, a more suiting resolution probably is "resolved".
