NAME
     locale -- get locale-specific information

SYNOPSIS
     locale [-a | -m]
     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 depending on environment variable settings and internal status.

     When locale is invoked with arguments and no options specified it will print out keyword's
     value determined using current locale settings.

     The following options are available:

     -a      Write names of all available locales.  While looking for locales locale will respect
	     the PATH_LOCALE environment variable, and use it instead of the system default
	     locale directory.

     -c      Write the category name for the selected keywords.

     -k      Write the name and value of the selected keywords.

     -m      Write names of all available charmaps.

IMPLEMENTATION DETAILS
     Special (FreeBSD- / NetBSD-specific) keyword list can be used to retrieve a human readable
     list of available keywords.

DIAGNOSTICS
     The locale utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.

STANDARDS
     locale conforms to IEEE Std 1003.1-2001 (``POSIX.1'').

HISTORY
     locale first appeared in NetBSD 2.0.

AUTHORS
     This implementation of locale was originally written by Alexey Zelkin <phantom@FreeBSD.org>
     for FreeBSD.

BUGS
     Since NetBSD does not support charmaps in their POSIX meaning locale emulates the -m option
     via CODESETs listing of all available locales.
