Macros/functions isascii_l(3) and toascii_l(3) are not in POSIX,
and isascii(3) and toascii(3) are deprecated:

nl_langinfo_l(3) is in POSIX and is not included in your list:

Will LC_GLOBAL_LOCALE designate the locale -f or locale -n locale?
locale -s and locale -u appear to return the Windows default product
locale e.g. en_US, regardless of system default regional settings.

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
