It currently supports locale specific printing of numbers, monetary values and dates/times, as well as provides support for string localization through a gettext-like mechanism.
For a brief example look at this.
Beware of the misguiding documentation - in current (i.e. 0.4) version - i18n API as described in documentation doesn't match the source code at all.
Possibly evil features.
- ~N: For printing numbers.
- ~M: For formatting monetary values.
- ~U: For dates and times (universal time).
(format nil "~v,,vU" "en_ZA" 0 3321593252) => "Mon 04 Apr 2005 08:47:32 +0000"
(format nil "~vN" "en_ZA" 19932.399) => "19,932.399"
(format nil "~vM" "sv_SE" 19932.399) => "19 932,40 kr"(I've found these to be a lot easier to use than ~/cl-l10n:format-?/ calls) NB: All output from these directives are dependant on the current locale, (but not on the phase of the moon).
Number and date/time parsing is also supported now (1 April 2005).
The current version is 0.3.
