Subject [jira] Commented: (STDCXX-665) [IBM XLC++ 9.0/AIX 5.3] 22.locale.messages fails with assertions
Date Mon, 03 Mar 2008 17:50:51 GMT


Travis Vitek commented on STDCXX-665:

This appears to be a bug in the documentation. The man page for catopen() says...

The *catopen* subroutine returns a catalog descriptor. If the *LC_MESSAGES* category is set
to the default value C, and the *LC\_\_FASTMSG* environment variable is set to true, the *catopen*
subroutine returns a value of -1.

The documentation bug is that you must set the *LC\_\_FASTMSG* environment variable to false
to get consistent behavior with other platforms. Setting the variable to something other than
_true_ or unsetting the variable is not sufficient. Again, *you must set LC\_\_FASTMSG to
false to get the expected behavior from catopen() on AIX*. I have verified this using the
above testcase.
