LOCALE(5)                               Linux User Manual                               LOCALE(5)



NAME
       locale - describes a locale definition file

DESCRIPTION
       The  locale  definition  files  contains all the information that the localedef(1) command
       needs to convert it into the binary locale database.

       The definition files consist of sections which each describe a locale category in detail.

   Syntax
       The locale definition file starts with a header that may consist  of  the  following  key-
       words:

       <escape_char>
              is followed by a character that should be used as the escape-character for the rest
              of the file to mark characters that should be interpreted in  a  special  way.   It
              defaults to the backslash (\).

       <comment_char>
              is  followed by a character that will be used as the comment-character for the rest
              of the file.  It defaults to the number sign (#).

       The locale definition has one part for each locale category.  Each part can be copied from
       another existing locale or can be defined from scratch.  If the category should be copied,
       the only valid keyword in the definition is copy followed by the name of the locale  which
       should be copied.

   LC_CTYPE
       The definition for the LC_CTYPE category starts with the string LC_CTYPE in the first col-
       umn.

       There are the following keywords allowed:

       upper  followed by a list of uppercase letters.  The letters  A  through  Z  are  included
              automatically.   Characters also specified as cntrl, digit, punct, or space are not
              allowed.

       lower  followed by a list of lowercase letters.  The letters  a  through  z  are  included
              automatically.   Characters also specified as cntrl, digit, punct, or space are not
              allowed.

       alpha  followed by a list of letters.  All character specified as either  upper  or  lower
              are  automatically  included.  Characters also specified as cntrl, digit, punct, or
              space are not allowed.

       digit  followed by the characters classified as numeric digits.  Only the digits 0 through
              9 are allowed.  They are included by default in this class.

       space  followed  by  a  list  of characters defined as white-space characters.  Characters
              also specified as upper, lower, alpha, digit, graph, or  xdigit  are  not  allowed.
              The characters <space>, <form-feed>, <newline>, <carriage-return>, <tab>, and <ver-
              tical-tab> are automatically included.

       cntrl  followed by a list of control characters.   Characters  also  specified  as  upper,
              lower, alpha, digit, punct, graph, print, or xdigit are not allowed.

       punct  followed  by a list of punctuation characters.  Characters also specified as upper,
              lower, alpha, digit, cntrl, xdigit, or the <space> character are not allowed.

       graph  followed by a list of printable characters, not including  the  <space>  character.
              The  characters  defined as upper, lower, alpha, digit, xdigit, and punct are auto-
              matically included.  Characters also specified as cntrl are not allowed.

       print  followed by a list of printable characters, including the <space>  character.   The
              characters  defined  as  upper, lower, alpha, digit, xdigit, punct, and the <space>
              character are automatically included.  Characters also specified as cntrl  are  not
              allowed.

       xdigit followed  by  a  list  of characters classified as hexadecimal digits.  The decimal
              digits must be included followed by one or more set of six characters in  ascending
              order.  The following characters are included by default: 0 through 9, a through f,
              A through F.

              <tab> are automatically included.

       toupper
              followed  by  a list of mappings from lowercase to uppercase letters.  Each mapping
              is a pair of a lowercase and an uppercase letter separated with a , and enclosed in
              parentheses.  The members of the list are separated with semicolons.

       tolower
              followed by a list of mappings from uppercase to lowercase letters.  If the keyword
              tolower is not present, the reverse of the toupper list is used.

       The LC_CTYPE definition ends with the string END LC_CYTPE.

   LC_COLLATE
       The LC_COLLATE category defines the rules for collating characters.  Due to limitations of
       libc not all POSIX-options are implemented.

       The definition starts with the string LC_COLLATE in the first column.

       There are the following keywords allowed:

       tion consists of lines that describe the order and is terminated with the keyword

       order_end.

       For more details see the sources in /usr/lib/nls/src notably the examples  POSIX,  Example
