Subject: [Boost-users] Ensuring same locale for reading/writing
From: Szymon Gatner (szymon.gatner_at_[hidden])

My original question comes from Random library but I guess it is not
strictly Random-related.

I would like to save a state of pseudo-random number generator and
then restore it on different machine with potentially different
locale. Random docs say tho:

"The state shall be written in a platform-independent manner, but it
is assumed that the locales used for writing and reading be the same."

How do I assure same locale on all machines / platforms? Or more
directly: how do I assure portable save/restore.
