In .Net how can COBOL find out the regional settings that are currently in use for a class.
The .Net Framework provides the class System.Globalization.CultureInfo that allows you to obtain regional characteristics.
Some sample code that uses this class is:-
$set ilusing"System.Globalization" program-id. Program1 as "CurrentCulture.Program1". data division. working-storage section. 01 Cult type CultureInfo. procedure division. ***** Obtan the Culture Information from the Current Thread set Cult to type CultureInfo::CurrentCulture ***** Display some Values from the Culture Class display "Current Locale= " Cult::EnglishName display "Current Date and Time Format = " Cult::DateTimeFormat::FullDateTimePattern display "Currency Symbol = " Cult::NumberFormat::CurrencySymbol display "Decimal Indicator = " Cult::NumberFormat::NumberDecimalSeparator goback. end program Program1.
