NAME

     locale - Perl pragma to use and avoid POSIX locales for
     built-in operations

SYNOPSIS

         @x = sort @y;       # ASCII sorting order
         {
             use locale;
             @x = sort @y;   # Locale-defined sorting order
         }
         @x = sort @y;       # ASCII sorting order again

DESCRIPTION

     This pragma tells the compiler to enable (or disable) the
     use of POSIX locales for built-in operations (LC_CTYPE for
     regular expressions, and LC_COLLATE for string comparison).
     Each "use locale" or "no locale" affects statements to the
     end of the enclosing BLOCK.

     See perllocale for more detailed information on how Perl
     supports locales.
