7.1.3.9.1 Characteristic: Localized Formatting

If an implementation provides the function $%FORMAT^STRING (see Clause 7.1.6.6.3), the following nodes may be defined.

^$System ( systemexpr , expr1 V "FORMAT" , expr2 V "DC") = expr3
^$System ( systemexpr , expr1 V "FORMAT" , expr2 V "EC") = expr3
^$System ( systemexpr , expr1 V "FORMAT" , expr2 V "FS") = expr3
^$System ( systemexpr , expr1 V "FORMAT" , expr2 V "FM") = expr3
^$System ( systemexpr , expr1 V "FORMAT" , expr2 V "SL") = expr3
^$System ( systemexpr , expr1 V "FORMAT" , expr2 V "SR") = expr3

The values of these nodes will provide process-wide defaults for the various localized formatting parameters. Possible values for these nodes and their meanings are described in Clause 7.1.6.6.3.
