Language Independent Interface for Blank Character
language independent mechanism for coded graphic
character classification testing is provided. This service addresses
the need to handle character data in a culturally correct manner.
A set of
programming language independent coded graphic
character classification testing services has been defined for
managing the culturally dependent information of a national language
dependent process. These services have been defined as programming
language independent procedure calls. Each of the callable services
relies on localization information available to them at runtime, to
alter their results in accordance with the local preferences of the
services use the data in a user's local profile
information which identifies preferences for various presentation
formats of the culturally sensitive information. The POSIX 'locale'
concept has been adopted as the means of specifying the user's
independent interface specifications allow for a
wide number of programming languages to be used on a variety of
prototypes were used in the specification of the
functions to accurately describe the argument list and the data types
calls were used rather than function calls because
not all programming languages support the use of processes which
return function results.
The main features of the procedure calls are:
o localization information is used to provide culturally correct
o localization information can be specified by name in the call
o error handling provides detailed information on type and
o condition handling facility...
