Attached a small example taken from Bruce Eckel Thinking in C++
On cygwin both this call

I could understand eventually the second one, but "English (US)" is
the current windows locale so I expected that at least "en_US.UTF-8"
What I am missing ?
This doesn't look like a Cygwin issue. The above error
"locale::facet::_S_create_c_locale name not valid" points to some
problem in the library implementing the locale call. The underlying
plain C call setlocale should work fine.
g++ 4.5.3 seems to have a problem on cygwin.
setlocale on pure C is working

it could be related to libstdc++ built with a different
--enable-clocale option ?
Or that functionality is not available on cygwin ?
