stri_locale_get()

Arguments

locale

single string of the form Language, Language_Country, or Language_Country_Variant, e.g. "en_US", see stri_locale_list

Details

See stringi-locale for more information on the effect of changing default locale.

stri_locale_get is the same as stri_locale_info(NULL)$Name.

Value

stri_locale_set returns a string with previously used locale, invisibly.

stri_locale_get returns a string of the form Language, Language_Country, or Language_Country_Variant, e.g. "en_US".
