Funny locale problem

P: n/a

My problem looks like this:

#include <locale>
#include <iostream>

int main(int argc, char* argv[])
std::locale::global( std::locale( "deu" ) );
std::cout.imbue( std::locale() );
std::cout << 1000.4 << " " << 0.4 << std::endl;
return 0;

This is MS VC++ 7.1 here (this explains the "deu" locale).

Output is:

1,000.4 0,4

Now, this is confusing! I really expected

1.000,4 0,4

in german locale.

Any suggestions?

Oops, this is a "double mis-post".

Please look at thread "locale and numeric output" if you want to answer

Thank you!
