NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       Czech, czech - Introduction to Czech language support

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       This  reference  page  describes  the  coded character set
       (codeset), locale, device, font, and other kinds  of  support
 for the Czech language as used in the Czech Republic.

   Codesets for Czech    [Toc]    [Back]
       The operating system supports the following  codesets  for
       Czech  by  means  of locales, codeset converters, or both:
       ISO 8859-2 (ISO Latin 2)

              ISO8859-2 is the string that represents this  codeset
 in names of locales and codeset converters. See
              iso8859-2(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 names  of  locales
              and  codeset  converters.  See  Unicode(5) for more
              information.  PC code pages

              cp852 and cp1250 are the strings that represent  PC
              code  pages 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 a discussion
 of codeset converters and how to use them.

   Locales    [Toc]    [Back]
       The operating system provides the  following  locales  for
       the Czech language and Czech Republic: cs_CZ.ISO8859-2

              This  locale  is  also  available  under  the  name
              cs_CZ.ISO8859-2@ucs4 for applications that need  to
              convert  data  from  ISO8859-2 file format to UCS-4
              process code for  character  classification  operations.

              UTF-8  locales  support file code and internal process
 code according to ISO 10646 and Unicode  standards.
  File  code,  in  UTF-8 locales, may include
              characters encoded in more than 1 byte;  therefore,
              use  these locales in applications that can process
              multibyte data. The UTF-8 locale supports the  euro
              monetary symbol; see euro(5).

       You can use the locale command (see locale(1)) to find out
       if  this  locale  is  installed  on   your   system.   See
       i18n_intro(5) for information on setting a locale.

       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 Czech characters  printed  on  the

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

       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
       Czech-specific  information  that  you  need  when loading

       Selecting keymaps in xkb format:

       For VT-Style             For PC-Style
       Keyboard:      Select:   Keyboard:      Select:

       LK46W-BV       lk461     LK97W-BV       lk97wbv or lk97w
                                PCXAL-HV       pcxalhv

                                PCXAL-SV       pcxalsv

       Selecting keymaps in xmodmap format:

       For VT-Style                   For PC-Style
       Keyboard:      Select:         Keyboard:      Select:

       LK46W-BV       czech lk411bv   PCXAL-HV       czech pcxalhv
                                      PCXAL-LU       czech pcxalhv
                                      PCXAL-LV       czech pcxallv
                                      PCXAL-PV       czech pcxalpv
                                      PCXAL-SV       czech pcxalhv

       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]
       For general information on printing support for  different
       languages,  see  i18n_printing(5).  The  PostScript  fonts
       available for languages supported by the ISO 8859-2  codeset
 are listed in iso8859-2(5).
