RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for localedef (redhat section 1)

LOCALEDEF(1)									     LOCALEDEF(1)

       localedef - compile locale definition files

       localedef  [-f  charmapfile] [-i inputfile] [--force] [--verbose] [--posix] [--quiet] out-
       localedef --version
       localedef --help

       The localedef program reads the indicated charmap and input files, compiles them to a form
       usable by the locale(7) functions in the C library, and places the six output files in the
       outputpath directory.

       If no charmapfile is given, POSIX is used by default.  If no inputfile is given, or if  it
       is given as -, localedef reads from standard input.

       Most  options  can  have  either short or long forms.  If multiple short options are used,
       they can be combined in one word (e.g.  -cv).  If an option takes an argument,  the  argu-
       ment can be given separately as the next word, or it can be written as option=argument.

       -f charmapfile, --charmap=charmapfile
	      Specify  the  file  that	defines the symbolic character names that are used by the
	      input file.  If the file is in the default directory for character maps, it is  not
	      necessary  to  specify  the  full  pathname.   This default directory is printed by
	      localedef --help.

       -i inputfile, --inputfile=inputfile
	      Specify the locale definition file to  compile.	If  inputfile  is  not	absolute,
	      localedef  will  also  look  in the directory specified by the environment variable
	      I18NPATH and in the default directory for locale definition  files.   This  default
	      directory is printed by localedef --help.

       -c, --force
	      Write the output files even if warnings were generated about the input file.

       -v, --verbose
	      Generate extra warnings about errors that are normally ignored.

	      Suppress all notifications and warnings, and report only fatal errors.

	      Be  strictly  POSIX  conformant.	 Implies --verbose.  This option currently has no
	      other  effect.   Posix  conformance  is  assumed	if   the   environment	 variable
	      POSIXLY_CORRECT is set.

       -u codeset, --code-set-name=codeset
	      This option is accepted but ignored.

       -h, --help
	      Print a usage summary and exit.  Also prints the default paths used by localedef.

       -V, --version
	      Print the version number, license, and disclaimer of warranty for localedef.

	      The --posix flag is assumed if this environment variable is set.

	      The default directory for locale definition files.

	      Usual default charmap path.

	      Usual default output path.  See the output from localedef --help for the paths used
	      in your version.

	      One of the output files.	It describes the  rules  for  comparing  strings  in  the
	      locale's alphabet.

	      One  of  the  output files.  It contains information about character cases and case
	      conversions for the locale.

	      One of the output files.	It describes the way monetary values should be	formatted
	      in the locale.

	      One  of  the  output  files.   It  contains information about the language messages
	      should be printed in, and what an affirmative or negative answer looks like.

	      One of the output files.	It describes the rules	for  formatting  numbers  in  the

	      One  of the output files.  It describes the rules for formatting times and dates in
	      the locale.

       locale(5), locale(7), locale(1)

       The program was written by Ulrich Drepper.

       This manpage was written by Richard Braakman <dark@xs4all.nl>  on  behalf  of  the  Debian
       GNU/Linux  Project  and anyone else who wants it.  The manpage is not supported by the GNU
       libc maintainers and may be out of date.
