NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       Spanish,  spanish  - Introduction to Spanish language support

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

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

   Codesets    [Toc]    [Back]
       The  operating system supports the following coded character
 sets (codesets) for Spanish by means of locales, codeset
 converters, or both: ISO 8859-1 (ISO Latin-1)

              ISO8859-1  is the string that represents this codeset
 in the names of locales and codeset converters.
              See iso8859-1(5) for more information.  ISO 8859-15
              (ISO Latin-9)

              ISO8859-15 is the string that represents this codeset
 in the names of locales and codeset converters.
              See iso8859-15(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

              cp437, cp850, and cp1250 are the strings that  represent
  these codesets in the names of codeset converters.
 See code_page(5) for more information.

       See  i18n_intro(5)  and  l10n_intro(5)  for   introductory
       information  on  codesets. See iconv_intro(5) for information
 on codeset converters and how to use them.

   Locales    [Toc]    [Back]
       The  operating  system  supports  the  following   Spanish
       locales:     es_ES.ISO8859-1,     es_ES.ISO8859-15,    and
       es_ES.UTF-8, for Spain

       The es_ES.ISO8859-15 and es_ES.UTF-8 locales use the  euro
       symbol  for  currency.  Because the es_ES.ISO8859-1 locale
       repertoire does not contain the euro symbol, it  continues
       to use the peseta currency symbol.

       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 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 Spanish characters printed on the

       VT Style (105/108 keys)   PC Style (102 keys)
       LK411-AS                  LK471-AR
       LK450-AS                  LK471-AS
       LK461-AS                  LK47W-AS
       LK46W-AS                  LK97W-AR

       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
       Spanish-specific information that you  need  when  loading

       Selecting keymaps in xkb format:

       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]
       PostScript fonts for languages supported by the ISO 8859-1
       codeset are printer resident. See i18n_printing(5)  for  a
       general discussion of your printing options.
