While using this function, remember to call bindtextdomain for as many domains as you want to use in your application.  For example, if I have module1 and module2 as 2 separate domains in the same application, you can do the following:

bindtextdomain("module1", "//path/to/my/locale/folder");
bindtextdomain("module2", "//path/to/my/locale/folder");
textdomain("module1");

echo _("Label1"); // this call will get the message from module1
echo dgettext("module2", "Label1"); // this call will get the message from module2
