Turkish, turkish - Introduction to Turkish language support DESCRIPTION
This reference page describes the coded character set (codeset), locale, device, font, and other kinds of support for the Turkish language. Codesets The operating system supports the following codesets for Turkish by means of locales, codeset converters, or both: ISO 8859-9 (ISO Latin 5) ISO8859-9 is the string that represents this codeset in names of locales and codeset converters. See iso8859-9(5) for more informa- tion. UCS-2, UCS-4, and UTF-8 UCS-2, UCS-4, ucs4, and UTF-8 are the strings that represent these encoding formats in names of locales and codeset converters. See Unicode(5) for more information. PC code pages cp850, cp852, cp857, and cp1254 are the strings that represent these encoding formats in the names of codeset converters. See code_page(5) for more information. 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 locale for the Turkish language and Turkey: tr_TR.ISO8859-9 The tr_TR.ISO8859-9@ucs4 variant of this locale is also available for applications that need to convert file data in ISO8859-9 for- mat to UCS-4 process code in order to perform certain character-classification operations. You can use the locale command (see locale(1)) to find out which locales are 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 of the Login window. Keyboards The operating system supports the following VT style and PC style keyboards with Turkish characters printed on the keys: ---------------------------------------------- VT Style (105/108 keys) PC Style (102 keys) ---------------------------------------------- LK401-BU_DP LK471-BU LK401-BU_TW LK97W-BU LK401-BW_DP PCXAL-JU LK401-BW_TW PCXAL-LU LK461-DP PCXAL-MU LK461-TW ---------------------------------------------- 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 Turkish-specific information that you need when loading keymaps. Selecting keymaps in xkb format: --------------------------------------------------------- For VT Style For PC Style Keyboard: Select: Keyboard: Select: --------------------------------------------------------- LK401-BU_DP lk401 LK471-BU lk471bu or lk471 LK401-BU_TW lk401 LK97W-BU lk97wbu or lk97w LK401-BW_DP lk401 PCXAL-JU pcxalju LK401-BW_TW lk401 PCXAL-LU pcxallu LK461-DP lk461 PCXAL-MU pcxalmu LK461-TW lk461 --------------------------------------------------------- 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 The PostScript fonts available for languages supported by the ISO 8859-9 codeset are listed on the iso8859-9(5) reference page. Refer to the i18n_printing(5) reference page for discussion of printer support options. SEE ALSO
