CATOPEN(3)                OpenBSD Programmer's Manual               CATOPEN(3)

     catopen - open message catalog

     #include <nl_types.h>

     catopen(const char *name, int oflag);

     The catopen() function opens the message catalog specified by name and
     returns a message catalog descriptor.  If name contains a `/', then name
     specifies the full pathname for the message catalog, otherwise the value
     of the environment variable NLSPATH is used with name substituted for

     The oflag argument is reserved for future use and should be set to zero.

     Upon successful completion, catopen() returns a message catalog descrip-
     tor.  Otherwise, -1 is returned and errno is set to indicate the error.

     [ENOMEM]      Insufficient memory available.

     catclose(3),  catgets(3)

     The catopen() function conforms to X/Open Portability Guide Issue 3
