       textdomain - set domain for future gettext() calls


       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, every 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 dget‐
       text, dcgettext, dngettext and dcngettext functions when called  with  a  NULL  domainname

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

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

       If successful, the textdomain function returns the current message domain, 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 warnings in C code pre‐
       dating ANSI C.
