NAME
       stringprep_locale_charset - API function

SYNOPSIS
       #include <stringprep.h>

       const char * stringprep_locale_charset( void);

ARGUMENTS
        void

DESCRIPTION
       Find  out  current  locale  charset.   The function respect the CHARSET
       environment variable, but typically uses nl_langinfo(CODESET)  when  it
       is  supported.   It  fall  back  on  "ASCII"  if  CHARSET isn't set and
       nl_langinfo isn't supported or return anything.

       Note that this function return  the  application's  locale's  preferred
       charset (or thread's locale's preffered charset, if your system support
       thread-specific locales).  It does not return what the  system  may  be
       using.   Thus,  if you receive data from external sources you cannot in
       general use this function to guess what charset it is encoded in.   Use
       stringprep_convert  from  the  external representation into the charset
       returned by this function, to have data in the locale encoding.

       Return value: Return the character set used by the current locale.   It
       will never return NULL, but use "ASCII" as a fallback.
