Re: 'DEM ', 'FRF ' no longer valid in int_curr_symbol
These are made up pseudolanguages loosely based on what was France and
Germany at the time as pseudo real world examples. The tests and these setup
require that the system support user defined locale definitions, there is no
intentional tie here between these and the real locales for those countries,
If we were to change the locale definitions, much test code that
tests for the user defined currency symbols DEM and FRF
would also need changing. Is there a problem with localedef
that prevents a user defining their own currency symbol?
