MirOS Manual: locale(1)

LOCALE(1)                    BSD Reference Manual                    LOCALE(1)

NAME

     locale - get locale-specific information

SYNOPSIS

     locale [-a | -m]
     locale [-ck] [keyword ...]

DESCRIPTION

     The locale utility is supposed to provide most locale specific informa-
     tion to the standard output.

     When locale is invoked without arguments it will print out a summary of
     the current locale environment depending on environment variable settings
     and internal status.

     When locale is invoked with arguments and no options specified it will
     print out keyword's value determined using current locale settings.

     The following options are available:

     -a      Write names of all available locales. On MirOS, this is hard-
             coded.

     -c      Write the category name for the selected keywords.

     -k      Write the name and value of the selected keywords.

     -m      Write names of all available charmaps. On MirOS, this is hard-
             coded.

IMPLEMENTATION DETAILS

     Special BSD-specific keyword list can be used to retrieve a human read-
     able list of available keywords.

DIAGNOSTICS

     The locale utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.

STANDARDS

     locale conforms to IEEE Std 1003.1-2001 ("POSIX").

HISTORY

     locale first appeared in NetBSD 2.0. It was ported to MirOS #10.

AUTHORS

     This implementation of locale was originally written by Alexey Zelkin
     <phantom@FreeBSD.org> for FreeBSD.

CAVEATS

     Since MirOS only implements the 'C' and "OPTU-8" locales, some items are
     hard-coded.
