Guile provides internationalization22
support for Scheme programs in two ways. First, procedures to
manipulate text and data in a way that conforms to particular cultural
conventions (i.e., in a “locale-dependent” way) are provided in the
(ice-9 i18n). Second, Guile allows the use of GNU
gettext to translate program message strings.
|• i18n Introduction||Introduction to Guile’s i18n support.|
|• Text Collation||Sorting strings and characters.|
|• Character Case Mapping||Case mapping.|
|• Number Input and Output||Parsing and printing numbers.|
|• Accessing Locale Information||Detailed locale information.|
|• Gettext Support||Translating message strings.|
For concision and style, programmers often like to refer to internationalization as “i18n”.
