## Not run: 
oldloc <- stri_locale_set('pt_BR')
## You are now working with stringi_1.8.4 (pt_BR.UTF-8; ICU4C 74.1 [bundle]; Unicode 15.1)
# ... some locale-dependent operations
# ... note that you may always modify a locale per-call
# ... changing the default locale is convenient if you perform
# ... many operations
stri_locale_set(oldloc) # restore the previous default locale
