NAME
locale -- get locale-specific information SYNOPSIS
locale [-a | -m] locale -k list [prefix] locale [-ck] [keyword ...] DESCRIPTION
The locale utility is supposed to provide most locale specific information to the standard output. When locale is invoked without arguments, it will print out a summary of the current locale environment, subject to the environment settings and internal status. When locale is invoked with the keyword arguments, and no options are specified, it will print out the values of all keywords specified, using the current locale settings. The following options are available: -a Print names of all available locales. While looking for locales, locale will respect the PATH_LOCALE environment variable, and use it instead of the system's default locale directory. -c Print the category name for all selected keywords. If no keywords are selected, print the category name for all defined keywords. -k Print the names and values of all selected keywords. If no keywords are selected, print the names and values of all defined key- words. -m Print names of all available charmaps. IMPLEMENTATION NOTES
The special (FreeBSD specific) keyword list can be used to retrieve the human readable list of all available keywords. If so, a prefix string can be defined to limit the amount of keywords returned. EXIT STATUS
The locale utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs. SEE ALSO
setlocale(3) STANDARDS
The locale utility conforms to IEEE Std 1003.1-2004 (``POSIX.1''). The LC_CTYPE, LC_MESSAGES and NLSPATH environment variables are not interpreted. BUGS
Since FreeBSD does not support charmaps in their POSIX meaning, locale emulates the -m option using the CODESETs listing of all available locales. BSD

NAME
locale -- display locale settings SYNOPSIS
locale [-a|m] locale [-ck] name [...] DESCRIPTION
locale displays information about the current locale, or a list of all available locales. When locale is run with no arguments, it will display the current source of each locale category. When locale is given the name of a category, it acts as if it had been given each keyword in that category. For each keyword it is given, the current value is displayed. OPTIONS
-a Lists all public locales. -c name ... Lists the category name before each keyword, unless it is the same category as the previously displayed keyword. -k name ... Displays the name of each keyword prior to its value. -m Lists all available public charmaps. Darwin locales do not support charmaps, so list all CODESETs instead. OPERANDS
The following operand is supported: name is the name of a keyword or category to display. A list of all keywords and categories can be shown with the following command: locale -ck LC_ALL ENVIRONMENT
LANG Used as a substitute for any unset LC_* variable. If LANG is unset, it will act as if set to "C". If any of LANG or LC_* are set to invalid values, locale acts as if they are all unset. LC_ALL Will override the setting of all other LC_* variables. LC_COLLATE Sets the locale for the LC_COLLATE category. LC_CTYPE Sets the locale for the LC_CTYPE category. LC_MESSAGES Sets the locale for the LC_MESSAGES category. LC_MONETARY Sets the locale for the LC_MONETARY category. LC_NUMERIC Sets the locale for the LC_NUMERIC category. LC_TIME Sets the locale for the LC_TIME category. SEE ALSO
