merge-locale-categories

Arguments: &rest args &key (locale *locale*) (external-format (locale-external-format default-locale)) &allow-other-keys

This function enables users to create a locale object which combines categories from other existing locales. Such a locale is unnamed (i.e., its name slot is nil), and is never returned by find-locale. After specifying the indicated keyword arguments (if you do), then category/locale pairs, specified as strings, indicate what should be merged.

For example,

(merge-locale-categories :locale (find-locale "af_ZA")
                         "LC_NUMERIC" "fr_FR"
                         "LC_MONETARY" "de_DE"
                         "LC_TIME" "ja_JP")

creates a new unnamed locale object with the categories from locales as specified in the call and all other categories from the af_ZA locale. If :locale is not specified, then the current locale (value of *locale*) is used.
