Greek, greek - Introduction to Greek language support DESCRIPTION
This reference page describes the codeset, locale, device, and other kinds of support for the Greek language. Codesets The operating system supports the following coded character sets (codesets) for Greek: ISO 8859-7 (ISO Latin/Greek) ISO8859-7 is the string that represents this codeset in the names of locales and codeset converters. Refer to iso8859-7(5) for information on the ISO Latin/Greek codeset. PC code-page formats (supported through codeset converters only) cp737, cp869, and cp1253 are the strings that represent these encoding formats in the names of codeset converters. Refer to code_page(5) for information on PC code pages. UCS-2, UCS-4, and UTF-8 encoding formats (file data supported through codeset con- verters only) UCS-2, UCS-4, and UTF-8 are the strings that represent these encoding formats in the names of codeset converters. Refer to Uni- code(5) for information on these encoding formats. See the i18n_intro(5) and l10n_intro(5) reference pages for introductory information on codesets. The iconv_intro(5) reference page dis- cusses codeset converters and how to use them. Locales The operating system provides the following Greek locale: el_GR.ISO8859-7, for Greece This locale is also available under the name el_GR.ISO8859-7@ucs4 for applications that need to convert data between ISO8859-7 file format and UCS-4 process code for character classification operations. You can use the locale command (see locale(1)) to find out if this locale is installed on your system. See i18n_intro(5) for information on setting locale from the operating system command line. For the Common Desktop Environment (CDE), you set locale by setting the session language. To do this, use the Language menu accessed from the Options button on the Login window. Keyboards The operating system supports the following VT style and PC style keyboards for Greek: ---------------------------------------------- VT Style (105/108 keys) PC Style (102 keys) ---------------------------------------------- Greek LK401 LK444 LK411 LK471-BH LK461 LK97W-BH Greek LK471 PCXAL-HH PCXAL-LH ---------------------------------------------- For your keyboard to function correctly with your system, you must load a keyboard mapping table (keymap) that is appropriate for your key- board'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 let- ter code). See the keyboard(5) reference page for general information on keymaps and instructions for loading them in different formats. The following tables supply Greek-specific information that you need when loading keymaps. Selecting keymaps in xkb format: --------------------------------------------------------- For VT Style For PC Style Keyboard: Select: Keyboard: Select: --------------------------------------------------------- LK401 Greek lk401 LK444 lk444 or lk44x LK411 lk411 LK471-BH lk471bh or lk471 LK461 lk461 LK97W-BH lk97wbh or lk97w PCXAL-HH pcxalhh PCXAL-LH pcxallh --------------------------------------------------------- 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. Refer to the keyboard(5) reference page for information on how to enter characters. Printers For information on setting up and configuring printers for non-English text, refer to the i18n_printing(5) reference page. PostScript fonts available for languages supported by the ISO 8859-7 codeset are listed on the iso8859-7(5) reference page. SEE ALSO
