NAME [Toc] [Back]
lang - description of supported languages
DESCRIPTION [Toc] [Back]
HP-UX NLS (Native Language Support) provides support for the
processing and customs requirements of a variety of languages. To
enable NLS support for a particular language, a language definition
must exist on the HP-UX system. Invoking the command locale -a (see
locale(1)) displays information regarding which languages are
currently supported on a particular HP-UX system.
The default processing language for HP-UX is POSIX. POSIX provides an
environment in which processing occurs without NLS functionality.
This environment is based on the 7-bit-coded USASCII character set.
POSIX and C are equivalent and can be used interchangeably.
