< cpp‎ | locale‎ | moneypunct
Defined in header <locale>
std::string grouping() const;
virtual std::string do_grouping() const;
1) Public member function, calls the member function do_grouping of the most derived class.
2) Returns the pattern that determines the grouping of the digits in the monetary output, with the same exact meaning as std::numpunct::do_grouping

The object of type std::string holding the groups. The standard specializations of std::moneypunct return an empty string, indicating no grouping. Typical groupings (e.g. the en_US locale) return "\003".
