I would also use nl_langinfo(CODESET), as Anssi said.

getenv("LANG") is probably to coarse and the old way of doing things,
nl_langinfo is the modern way.

setlocale(LC_CTYPE, "") sets the locale to nothing -- what you probably meant
is setlocale(LC_CTYPE, 0) ... just to clarify things, in case somebody wants
to use the knowledge of these emails later :-)

Kind regards,
Stefan
