moneypunct::curr_symbol


public member function
string_type curr_symbol() const;

Return currency symbol

Returns the string used to represent the currency symbol.

During its operation, the version of this function in the generic template simply calls the virtual protected member do_curr_symbol, which is the member function in charge of performing the actions described above.

Parameters

none

Return value

The string used to represent the currency symbol.
string_type is a member alias of basic_string<charT>, where charT is the first template parameter (i.e., the facet's character type).

// moneypunct example
#include <iostream>
#include <locale>
using namespace std;

// overload inserter to print patterns:
ostream& operator<< (ostream& os, moneypunct<char>::pattern p)
{
  for (int i=0; i<4; i++)
    switch (p.field[i]) {
      case moneypunct<char>::space: cout << "space "; break;

      case moneypunct<char>::value: cout << "value "; break;
    }
  return os;
}

int main ()
{

  const moneypunct<char>& mp = use_facet<moneypunct<char> >(mylocale);

  cout << "moneypunct in locale \"" << mylocale.name() << "\":\n";

  cout << "decimal_point: " << mp.decimal_point() << endl;

Possible output:

moneypunct in locale "C":
decimal_point:
thousands_sep:
grouping:
curr_symbol:
positive_sign:
negative_sign: -
frac_digits: 0
pos_format: symbol sign value
neg_format: symbol sign value
