Locale fix in KiCAD is not working (breaks my build)


Hello Miguel,

My WX is 2.8

Your WX is 2.9 I guess

I think there should be a cleaner way to handle this kind of thing.
(comma/dot in floating point)
Would it be possible to set LC_NUMERIC someway?

char prvlocale[255];
strcpy( prvlocale, wxSetlocale(LC_NUMERIC, NULL) );
const char *oldLocale = wxSetlocale(LC_NUMERIC, "C");


if ( !oldLocale )
/* the current locale was not changed; no need to */
/* restore the previous one... */
} else {
/* restore the original locale */
wxSetlocale(LC_NUMERIC, prvlocale);
