i18n_loc_set_default -- Set the default Locale

Description

bool i18n_loc_set_default ( string name )

Sets the default Locale for PHP programs. Please note that this has nothing to do with setlocale() nor with the system locale.

Parameters

name

The new Locale name. A comprehensive list of the supported locales is available at http://www-950.ibm.com/software/globalization/icu/demo/locales/en/?d_=en.

Return Values

Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure.

Examples

Example 1. A i18n_loc_set_default() example

This example demonstrates a possible usage of i18n_loc_set_default() to localize the sort() functions.

<?php

// the list of the strings to sort
$array = array(
    
'caramelo',
    
'cacto',
    
'caçada'
);

// set our locale (Portuguese, in this case)
i18n_loc_set_default('pt_PT');

// sort using the locale we previously set
sort($array, SORT_LOCALE_STRING);

print_r($array);
?>

The above example will output:

Array
(
    [0] => caçada
    [1] => cacto
    [2] => caramelo
)

If we didn't use the locale, PHP would sort the string using the ASCII characters value, thus returning (wrongly):

Array
(
    [0] => cacto
    [1] => caramelo
    [2] => caçada
)
