After your post I quickly checked and was relieved to find that C's sprintf has not yet been touched by the locale police. phewww. Although I found this:
For some numeric conversions a radix character ("decimal point") or
thousands' grouping character is used. The actual character used
depends on the LC_NUMERIC part of the locale. (See setlocale(3).) The
POSIX locale uses '.' as radix character, and does not have a grouping
And also this, which distinguishes between %g and %'g
' For decimal conversion (i, d, u, f, F, g, G) the output is to be
grouped with thousands' grouping characters if the locale infor‐
mation indicates any.
Perhaps issue a feature request that Perl follows the same principle. You will do mankind a favour. Unless it does already?
