LCID Locate...


I have coders block and really cant think at the moment, so a helping hand might be nice :)

I get a systems LCID using GetSystemDefaultLCID(); but then how can I convert this into its three letter abbreviation.

For example,

English LCID 0809 returns ENG
English LCID 0409 returns ENU
French LCID 040C reutrns FRA

Many thanks.

Ooops, forgot:

Abbreviated name of the language, created by taking the 2-letter language abbreviation from the ISO Standard 639 and adding a third letter, as appropriate, to indicate the sublanguage.

BTW, see also http://www.microsoft.com/globaldev/reference/winxp/langtla.mspx ("List of Windows XP's Three Letter Acronyms for Languages") and http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/en-us/intl/nls_34rz.asp ("GetLocaleInfo")

Cheers perfect :)
