It doesn't even look like there is a way in OS X terminal to get that information. You might try setting some variable to a number and then seeing how the OS formats it, but I don't even know how to go about doing that.

I don;t know what the correct currency symbol should be without either getting it from the user's OS preference settings or asking the user to specify it to my application as a preference.  I'm hoping there's a way to get it from the OS preferences so users don;t have to specify it two different places.
