numfmt: a sample program which displays number formatting in C and C++
This sample demonstrates
Formatting a number
Outputting text in the default codepage to the console
main.cpp Main source file in C++
capi.c C version
util.cpp formatted output convenience implementation
util.h formatted output convenience header
numfmt.sln Windows MSVC workspace. Double-click this to get started.
numfmt.vcproj Windows MSVC project file
To Build on Windows
1. Install and build ICU
2. In MSVC, open the workspace file icu\samples\numfmt\numfmt.sln
3. Choose a Debug or Release build.
4. Build.
To Run on Windows
1. Start a command shell window
2. Add ICU's bin directory to the path, e.g.
set PATH=c:\icu\bin;%PATH%
(Use the path to where ever ICU is on your system.)
3. cd into the numfmt directory, e.g.
cd c:\icu\source\samples\numfmt\debug
4. Run it
To Build on Unixes
1. Build ICU.
Specify an ICU install directory when running configure,
using the --prefix option. The steps to build ICU will look something
like this:
cd <icu directory>/source
runConfigureICU <platform-name> --prefix <icu install directory> [other options]
gmake all
2. Install ICU,
gmake install
3. Compile
cd <icu directory>/source/samples/numfmt
gmake ICU_PREFIX=<icu install directory)
To Run on Unixes
cd <icu directory>/source/samples/numfmt
gmake ICU_PREFIX=<icu install directory> check
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=<icu install directory>/lib:.:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
Note: The name of the LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable is different on some systems.
If in doubt, run the sample using "gmake check", and note the name of
the variable that is used there. LD_LIBRARY_PATH is the correct name
for Linux and Solaris.
