Unix charset

Hi, How can I find out the charset on a Unix server (SUNOS 5.2)? I tried locale charmap and returned 646. What does 646 mean? If I send an xml file with encoding="utf-8", should the server be able to handle the file, even with special characters in it? Thanks. (0 Replies)

NAME
uselocale - set/get the locale for the calling thread SYNOPSIS
#include <locale.h> locale_t uselocale(locale_t newloc); Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)): uselocale(): Since glibc 2.10: _XOPEN_SOURCE >= 700 Before glibc 2.10: _GNU_SOURCE DESCRIPTION
The uselocale() function sets the current locale for the calling thread, and returns the thread's previously current locale. After a suc- cessful call to uselocale(), any calls by this thread to functions that depend on the locale will operate as though the locale has been set to newloc. The newloc argument can have one of the following values: A handle returned by a call to newlocale(3) or duplocale(3) The calling thread's current locale is set to the specified locale. The special locale object handle LC_GLOBAL_LOCALE The calling thread's current locale is set to the global locale determined by setlocale(3). (locale_t) 0 The calling thread's current locale is left unchanged (and the current locale is returned as the function result). RETURN VALUE
On success, uselocale() returns the locale handle that was set by the previous call to uselocale() in this thread, or LC_GLOBAL_HANDLE if there was no such previous call. On error, it returns (locale_t) 0, and sets errno to indicate the cause of the error. ERRORS
EINVAL newloc does not refer to a valid locale object. VERSIONS
The uselocale() function first appeared in version 2.3 of the GNU C library. CONFORMING TO
POSIX.1-2008. NOTES
Unlike setlocale(3), uselocale() does not allow selective replacement of individual locale categories. To employ a locale that differs in only a few categories from the current locale, use calls to duplocale(3) and newlocale(3) to obtain a locale object equivalent to the cur- rent locale and modify the desired categories in that object. EXAMPLE
See newlocale(3) and duplocale(3). SEE ALSO
locale(1), duplocale(3), freelocale(3), newlocale(3), setlocale(3), locale(5), locale(7) COLOPHON
