Bash Version: 2.05
Patch Level: 0
Release Status: release

        Draft 6 of POSIX 1003.1-200x says that the shell's "printf" command
        must support the use of apostrophe as a flag character in printf
        specifications.  For example, in a locale that uses "," as a thousands
        separator, bash should behave as follows:

           $ printf "%'d\\n" 1234567

        On a Solaris 7 box, run the following commands.

           export LC_ALL=en_US
           printf "%'d\\n" 1234567

        The output should be "1,234,567", but Bash instead outputs
        "bash: printf: `'': invalid format character".
