    Command:

    locale

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           locale [OPTION]
           locale [OPTION] -a
           locale [OPTION] -m
           locale [OPTION] NAME...
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           The  locale  command  displays information about the current locale, or
           all locales, on standard output.
    
           When invoked without arguments, locale displays the current locale set-
           tings  for  each locale category (see locale(5)), based on the settings
           of the environment variables that control the locale (see locale(7)).
    
           If either the -a or the -m option (or one of their long-format  equiva-
           lents) is specified, the behavior is as follows:
    
           -a, --all-locales
                  Display  a  list of all available locales.  The -v option causes
                  the LC_IDENTIFICATION metadata about each locale to be  included
                  in the output.
    
           -m, --charmaps
                  Display   the  available  charmaps  (character  set  description
                  files).
    
           The locale command can also be provided with  one  or  more  arguments,
           which  are  the names of locale keywords (for example, date_fmt, ctype-
           class-names, yesexpr, or decimal_point) or locale categories (for exam-
           ple,  LC_CTYPE  or  LC_TIME).  For each argument, the following is dis-
           played:
    
           *  For a locale keyword, the value of that keyword to be displayed.
    
           *  For a locale category, the values of all keywords in  that  category
              are displayed.
    
           When arguments are supplied, the following options are meaningful:
    
           -c, --category-name
                  For a category name argument, write the name of the locale cate-
                  gory on a separate line preceding the list of keyword values for
                  that category.
    
                  For  a keyword name argument, write the name of the locale cate-
                  gory for this keyword on a separate line preceding  the  keyword
                  value.
    
                  This  option  improves  readability when multiple name arguments
                  are specified.  It can be combined with the -k option.
    
           -k, --keyword-name
    
           --usage
                  Display a short usage message and exit.
    
           -V, --version
                  Display the program version and exit.
