       textdomain - set domain for future gettext() calls

       #include <libintl.h>

       char * textdomain (const char * domainname);

       The textdomain function sets or retrieves the current message domain.

       A  message domain is a set of translatable msgid messages. Usually, ev-
       ery software package has its own message domain.  The  domain  name  is
       used to determine the message catalog where a translation is looked up;
       it must be a non-empty string.

       The current message domain is used by the gettext, ngettext  functions,
       and by the dgettext, dcgettext, dngettext and dcngettext functions when
       called with a NULL domainname argument.

       If domainname is not NULL, the current message domain is set to domain-
       name.  The  string  the function stores internally is a copy of the do-
       mainname argument.

       If domainname is NULL, the function returns the current message domain.

       If successful, the textdomain function returns the current message  do-
       main,  after  possibly changing it. The resulting string is valid until
       the next textdomain call and must not be modified or freed. If a memory
       allocation failure occurs, it sets errno to ENOMEM and returns NULL.

       The following error can occur, among others:

       ENOMEM Not enough memory available.

       The  return type ought to be const char *, but is char * to avoid warn-
       ings in C code predating ANSI C.
