>From the book I have in front of me (which may not be accurate), it
should be possible to set the formatting of numeric types independently
of the other locale settings:

setenv LANG <Locale1>
setenv LC_NUMERIC <Locale2>

It also says that ISO C specifies a "C" Locale, which behaves the same
as uninternationalised C functions.  So it *should* be possible to use:

setenv LANG fr_FR
setenv LC_NUMERIC C

I have no idea whether this works in practice.

Hello, ...

I am playing with the postscript.ml module from Nicolas Georges.

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

3,14

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 ?

Friendly,

Svne Luther
