Intrinsic Functions Numval and Numval-c

Restriction: National Locale Support is only supported for native COBOL code.

If a program compiled with the NLS directive set attempts to convert a number or a monetary value in a display item to a numeric value by using the intrinsic functions Numval or Numval-c, then the run-time system uses the decimal point and thousands separator appropriate to the locale. Also, if no second argument is supplied for Numval-c, then the currency symbol used is the currency symbol of the locale territory.
