     int
     dprintf_l(int fd, locale_t loc, const char * restrict format, ...);

     int
     fprintf_l(FILE * restrict stream, locale_t loc, const char * restrict format, ...);

     int
     printf_l(locale_t loc, const char * restrict format, ...);

     int
     snprintf_l(char * restrict str, size_t size, locale_t loc, const char * restrict format, ...);

     int
     sprintf_l(char * restrict str, locale_t loc, const char * restrict format, ...);

     int
     vasprintf_l(char **ret, locale_t loc, const char *format, va_list ap);

     int
     vdprintf_l(int fd, locale_t loc, const char * restrict format, va_list ap);

     int
     vfprintf_l(FILE * restrict stream, locale_t loc, const char * restrict format, va_list ap);

     int
     vprintf_l(locale_t loc, const char * restrict format, va_list ap);

     int
     vsnprintf_l(char * restrict str, size_t size, locale_t loc, const char * restrict format, va_list ap);

DESCRIPTION
     The printf_l(), dprintf_l(), fprintf_l(), sprintf_l(), snprintf_l(), asprintf_l(), vprintf_l(),
     vdprintf_l(), vfprintf_l(), vsprintf_l(), vsnprintf_l(), and vasprintf_l() functions are extended
     locale versions of the printf(), dprintf(), fprintf(), sprintf(), snprintf(), asprintf(), vprintf(),
     vdprintf(), vfprintf(), vsprintf(), vsnprintf(), and vasprintf() functions, respectively.  Refer to
     their manual pages for details.  Also, see xlocale(3) for more information about extended locales.
