- Method textdomain
string textdomain(void|string domain)
The textdomain() function sets or queries the name of the current domain of the active LC_MESSAGES locale category. The domain argument is a string that can contain only the characters allowed in legal filenames.
The domain argument is the unique name of a domain on the system. If there are multiple versions of the same domain on one system, namespace collisions can be avoided by using bindtextdomain(). If textdomain() is not called, a default domain is selected. The setting of domain made by the last valid call to textdomain() remains valid across subsequent calls to setlocale(), and gettext().
The normal return value from textdomain() is a string containing the current setting of the domain. If domainname is void, textdomain() returns a string containing the current domain. If textdomain() was not previously called and domainname is void, the name of the default domain is returned.
