       char *catgets(nl_catd catalog, int set_number, int message_number,
                     const char *message);

       catgets() reads the message message_number, in set set_number, from the
       message catalog identified by  catalog,  where  catalog  is  a  catalog
       descriptor  returned  from  an  earlier call to catopen(3).  The fourth
       argument message points to a  default  message  string  which  will  be
       returned  by  catgets()  if  the identified message catalog is not cur-
       rently available.  The message-text is contained in an internal  buffer
       area  and  should  be copied by the application if it is to be saved or
       modified.  The return string is always terminated with a null byte.

       On success, catgets() returns a pointer to an internal buffer area con-
       taining  the  null-terminated  message  string.   On failure, catgets()
       returns the value message.


       These functions are only available in  and  above.   The
       Jan 1987 X/Open Portability Guide specifies a more subtle error return:
       message is returned if the message catalog specified by catalog is  not
       available,  while  an empty string is returned when the message catalog
       is available but does not contain the  specified  message.   These  two
       possible error returns seem to be discarded in SUSv2 in favor of always
       returning message.
