Description

The basic format for specifying a locale is:

language_country.codeset

Where codeset and country are optional. The language and country are short codes defined by the standards ISO 639 (language) and ISO 3166 (country), The codeset represents a specific character encoding, like ISO8859-1. You will need to consult your system documentation for what locales, and their formats, are supported.

NOTE:

On Unix-based system, the command locale may be available to get list of all supported locales for you system.

Examples

LANG gives you the ability to create locale-specific archives on a single system. For example, let's say the you manage several English-based archives and the default locale for your system is en_US. However, you would now like to host a Japanese-based archive on the same system.

For the Japanese archive, you may want to set LANG as follows:

<Lang>
ja_JP
</Lang>

If you plan on using a specific codeset (see TEXTENCODE and CHARSETCONVERTERS) you should specify the codeset. For example, if the archives will be in UTF-8, you should use:

<Lang>
ja_JP.utf8
</Lang>

Version

2.6.7
