where is installer in the tree? LordPixel could you help w/ the mac version of this? windows: #include <winnls.h> int GetNumberFormat( LCID Locale, // locale for which number string is to be formatted DWORD dwFlags, // bit flag that controls the function's operation LPCTSTR lpValue, // pointer to input number string CONST NUMBERFMT *lpFormat, // pointer to a formatting information structure LPTSTR lpNumberStr, // pointer to output buffer int cchNumber // size of output buffer ); LCID should be one of: LOCALE_SYSTEM_DEFAULT //Default system locale. LOCALE_USER_DEFAULT //Default user locale. dwFlags should be LOCALE_NOUSEROVERRIDE [i think] lpFormat should be NULL //the function uses the number format of the specified locale. lpValue Points to a null-terminated string containing the number string to format. This string can only contain the following characters: · Characters '0' through '9' · One decimal point (dot) if the number is a floating-point value · A minus sign in the first character position if the number is a negative value All other characters are invalid. The function returns an error if the string pointed to by lpValue deviates from these rules. lpNumberStr Points to a buffer to receive the formatted number string. cchNumber Specifies the size, in bytes (ANSI version) or characters (Unicode version), of the lpNumberStr buffer. If cchNumber is zero, the function returns the number of bytes or characters required to hold the formatted number string, and the buffer pointed to by lpNumberStr is not used. Return Values If the function succeeds, the return value is the number of bytes (ANSI version) or characters (Unicode version) written to the buffer pointed to by lpNumberStr, or if the cchNumber parameter is zero, the number of bytes or characters required to hold the formatted number string. If the function fails, the return value is zero.
