There is no general way to find out, though sufficient experience
disassembling a particular compiler's output may enable you to
recognize its particular style. What are you trying to accomplish?

for older applications with a resource fork, examination with ResEdit
or http://www.ljug.com/sw/resfool.html or
http://www.ljug.com/sw/resploder.html may give you some hints.

If there are lots of 'PPob' resources then it is written in c++ using
PowerPlant.

There are similar resource types identifying older frameworks such as
TCL and MacApp.

Beyond that, it gets lots harder. Looking for function names may give
you a clue - c++ function names are often severely mangled.

On MacOS X you can set a priority for the language used. For example
(US, FR, IT)

In RB, I use constants to specify texts for different languages (US,
FR...)

In my case, language used by my application is US.

If the system language priority change to (IT, FR, US...), language
used by my application is now FR.

In france the first day of week is Monday, in US is Sunday, then I
need to define the correct first day of week in accordance with the
used language.

For MacOS X you can get all of this information using CFLocale.

Maybe I don't understand clearly CFLocal doc, but it seems to return
information about current user instead of current application.
