Subject: [Caml-list] postscript, printf module and coma separator.
Hello, ...

I am playing with the module from Nicolas Georges.

Unfortunately, i have the LANG variable set to fr_FR, and as thus fprintf
outputs floats as :


but this is not a valid postscript coordinate. 

removing the LANG variable give me the standard 3.14 output, which is
acceptable to generate postscript files.

Is there a way to have printf output floats in the standard C "." format,
independent of locales ?

Or is the best guess as how to solve this to backup, change to "" and then set
again the LANG variable using the appropriate ocaml functions ?
