LOCALE(1) BSD Reference Manual LOCALE(1)
locale - get locale-specific information
locale [-a | -m] locale [-ck] [keyword ...]
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.
Special BSD-specific keyword list can be used to retrieve a human read- able list of available keywords.
The locale utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.
locale conforms to IEEE Std 1003.1-2001 ("POSIX").
locale first appeared in NetBSD 2.0. It was ported to MirOS #10.
This implementation of locale was originally written by Alexey Zelkin <phantom@FreeBSD.org> for FreeBSD.
Since MirOS only implements the 'C' and "OPTU-8" locales, some items are hard-coded. MirOS BSD #10-current November 1, 2006 1
