If you do not have a thread aware implementation of "setlocale", then it is *VERY* dangerous to change "setlocale" inside a thread -- as changing any global data can lead to non-deterministic behaviour in a multi-threaded environment unless special precautions (locking) are taken. Apparently, you are aware of the danger. But, I have not seen how you avoid the problem in your sketched solution. -- Dieter _______________________________________________ Zope maillist - Zope@zope.org http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev )
