NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       Hebrew, hebrew - Introduction to Hebrew language support

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       This reference page describes the codeset, locale, device,
       and other kinds of support for the Hebrew language.

   Codesets    [Toc]    [Back]
       The operating system supports the following coded  character
  sets (codesets) for Hebrew by means of locales, codeset
 converters, or both: ISO 8859-8 (ISO Latin/Hebrew)

              ISO8859-8 is the string that represents this  codeset
 in the names of locales and codeset converters.
              See iso8859-1(5)  for  more  information.   UTF-16,
              UCS-4, and UTF-8

              UTF-16,  UCS-4, and UTF-8 are the strings that represent
 these  encoding  formats  in  the  names  of
              locales  and codeset converters. See Unicode(5) for
              more information.  PC code pages

              cp862 and cp1255 are  the  strings  that  represent
              these encoding formats in the names of codeset converters.
  See code_page(5) for more information.

       See iso8859-8(5) for information on the  ISO  Latin/Hebrew
       codeset. See i18n_intro(5) and l10n_intro(5) for introductory
 information on codesets.

   Locales    [Toc]    [Back]
       The operating system provides the following Hebrew locale:
       he_IL.ISO8859-8, for Israel

              This  locale  is  also  available  under  the  name
              he_IL.ISO8859-8@ucs4 for use by  applications  that
              need  to  convert  file data in ISO8859-8 format to
              UCS-4 process code for special operations on  characters.

              For backward compatibility, iw_IL.ISO8859-8 is supported
 as an alias for he_IL.ISO8859-8.

       You can use the locale command (see locale(1)) to find out
       which   locales   are   installed   on  your  system.  See
       i18n_intro(5) for information on setting a locale from the
       operating system command line.

       In the Common Desktop Environment (CDE), you need to set a
       locale by setting the session language. To do  this,  from
       the  Options  menu  of  the Login window, choose Language.
       Then, from the Language options  menu,  choose  a  session

   Keyboards    [Toc]    [Back]
       The  operating  system supports the following VT-style and
       PC-style keyboards with Hebrew characters printed  on  the

       VT-Style (105/108 keys)   PC-Style (102 keys)
       LK411-LT                  LK471-AT
       LK433-LT                  LK97W-AT

       For  your keyboard to function correctly with your system,
       you must load a keyboard mapping table  (keymap)  that  is
       appropriate for your keyboard's model and language. If you
       load a keymap that does not correspond to your  keyboard's
       model  and  language,  your  keyboard  behavior  is unpredictable.
 The label located on the  bottom  surface  of  a
       keyboard  usually  specifies  its model (five-letter code)
       and language (two-letter code). See keyboard(5)  for  general
  information  on keymaps and instructions for loading
       them in different formats.  The  following  tables  supply
       Hebrew-specific  information  that  you  need when loading

       Selecting keymaps in xkb format:

       For VT-Style             For PC-Style
       Keyboard:      Select:   Keyboard:      Select:
       LK411-LT       lk411     LK471-AT       lk471at or lk471
       LK433-LT       lk433     LK97W-AT       lk97wat or lk97w
                                PCXAL-KT       pcxalkt
                                PCXAL-AT       pcxalat
                                PCXAL-GT       pcxalgt

       Selecting keymaps in xmodmap format:

       For PC-Style
       Keyboard:      Select:
       PCXAL-GT       hebrew pcxalgt
       PCXAL-KT       hebrew pcxalkt

       Keyboards can have keys with characters  printed  on  both
       the  left and right half of the keycap. The way you set or
       use your keyboard to send  different  sets  of  characters
       varies  from  one  keyboard model to another. Furthermore,
       your keyboard allows you to  enter  more  characters  than
       those printed on the keycaps. See keyboard(5) for information
 on how to enter characters.

   Printers    [Toc]    [Back]
       The fonts available for languages  supported  by  the  ISO
       8859-8 codeset are listed in iso8859-8(5). See i18n_printing(5) for a discussion of printer support options.
