       The locale.alias database file (/etc/locale.alias) is used by the locale command and the X
       Window System It describes aliases for the locales, with each line being of the form

       the ISO-639 Language code,
	the  next  two YY are the ISO-3166 Country code, and the Charset is one of the	character
       sets (listed in /usr/share/i18n/charsets ).  The aliases can be free text; they	are  nor-
       mally the English language name, or simpler versions of the POSIX locale name.

       Lines beginning with Hash ("#") are treated as comments and ignored.
