NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       Turkish,  turkish  - Introduction to Turkish language support

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       This reference page  describes  the  coded  character  set
       (codeset),  locale,  device, font, and other kinds of support
 for the Turkish language.

   Codesets    [Toc]    [Back]
       The operating system supports the following  codesets  for
       Turkish  by means of locales, codeset converters, or both:
       ISO 8859-9 (ISO Latin 5)

              ISO8859-9 is the string that represents this  codeset
 in names of locales and codeset converters. See
              iso8859-9(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

              cp850, cp852, cp857, and  cp1254  are  the  strings
              that  represent these encoding formats in the names
              of codeset converters. See  code_page(5)  for  more

       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 Turkish language and Turkey: tr_TR.ISO8859-9

              The tr_TR.ISO8859-9@ucs4 variant of this locale  is
              also  available  for applications that need to convert
 file data in ISO8859-9 format to UCS-4 process
              code  in order to perform certain character-classification
 operations.  tr_TR.UTF-8

              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
       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 Turkish characters printed on  the

       VT-Style (105/108 keys)   PC-Style (102 keys)
       LK411-DP                  LK471-BU
       LK411-TW                  LK97W-BU
       LK461-DP                  PCXAL-JU
       LK461-TW                  PCXAL-LU

       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
       Turkish-specific  information  that  you need when loading

       Selecting keymaps in xkb format:

       For VT-Style             For PC-Style
       Keyboard:      Select:   Keyboard:      Select:
       LK411-DP       lk411     LK471-BW       lk471bw or lk471
       LK411-TW       lk411     LK97W-BW       lk97wbuw or lk97w
       LK461-DP       lk461     PCXAL-MU       pcxalmu
       LK461-TW       lk461
       LK411-DP       lk411     LK471-BU       lk471bu or lk471
       LK411-TW       lk411     LK97W-BU       lk97wbu or lk97w
       LK461-DP       lk461     PCXAL-JU       pcxalju
       LK461-TW       lk461     PCXAL-LU       pcxallu

       Selecting keymaps in xmodmap format:

       For PC-Style
       Keyboard:      Select:
       PCXAL-MU       turkish f pcxalmu
       PCXAL-JU       turkish q pcxalju
       PCXAL-LU       turkish q pcxallu

       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 PostScript fonts available for languages supported  by
       the ISO 8859-9 codeset are listed in iso8859-9(5).

       See  i18n_printing(5)  for a discussion of printer support
