LOCALEDEF(1)                                                      LOCALEDEF(1)



NAME
       localedef - compile locale definition files

SYNOPSIS
       localedef [-f charmapfile] [-i inputfile] [--force] [--verbose] [--posix] [--quiet] outputpath
       localedef --version
       localedef --help

DESCRIPTION
       The  localedef  program  reads  the  indicated  charmap  and input files, compiles them to a form usable by the
       locale(7) functions in the C library, and places the six output files in the outputpath directory.

       If no charmapfile is given, POSIX is used by default.  If no inputfile is given,  or  if  it  is  given  as  -,
       localedef reads from standard input.

OPTIONS
       Most  options can have either short or long forms.  If multiple short options are used, they can be combined in
       one word (e.g.  -cv).  If an option takes an argument, the argument can be given separately as the  next  word,
       or it can be written as option=argument.

       -f charmapfile, --charmap=charmapfile
              Specify the file that defines the symbolic character names that are used by the input file.  If the file
              is in the default directory for character maps, it is not necessary to specify the full pathname.   This
              default directory is printed by localedef --help.

       -i inputfile, --inputfile=inputfile
              Specify  the  locale definition file to compile.  If inputfile is not absolute, localedef will also look
              in the directory specified by the environment variable I18NPATH and in the default directory for  locale
              definition files.  This default directory is printed by localedef --help.

       -c, --force
              Write the output files even if warnings were generated about the input file.

       -v, --verbose
              Generate extra warnings about errors that are normally ignored.

       --quiet
              Suppress all notifications and warnings, and report only fatal errors.

       --posix
              Be  strictly  POSIX  conformant.   Implies --verbose.  This option currently has no other effect.  Posix
              conformance is assumed if the environment variable POSIXLY_CORRECT is set.

       -u codeset, --code-set-name=codeset
              This option is accepted but ignored.

       -h, --help
              Print a usage summary and exit.  Also prints the default paths used by localedef.

       -V, --version
              Print the version number, license, and disclaimer of warranty for localedef.

ENVIRONMENT
       POSIXLY_CORRECT
              The --posix flag is assumed if this environment variable is set.

       I18NPATH
              The default directory for locale definition files.

FILES
       /usr/share/i18n/charmaps
              Usual default charmap path.

       /usr/share/locale
              Usual default output path.  See the output from localedef --help for the paths used in your version.

       outputpath/LC_COLLATE
              One of the output files.  It describes the rules for comparing strings in the locale's alphabet.

       outputpath/LC_CTYPE
              One of the output files.  It contains information about character cases and  case  conversions  for  the
              locale.

       outputpath/LC_MONETARY
              One of the output files.  It describes the way monetary values should be formatted in the locale.

       outputpath/LC_MESSAGES/SYS_LC_MESSAGES
              One  of the output files.  It contains information about the language messages should be printed in, and
              what an affirmative or negative answer looks like.

       outputpath/LC_NUMERIC
              One of the output files.  It describes the rules for formatting numbers in the locale.

       outputpath/LC_TIME
              One of the output files.  It describes the rules for formatting times and dates in the locale.
