|Linux / Unix Command: localedef|
NAMElocaledef - compile locale definition files
SYNOPSISlocaledef [-f charmapfile] [-i inputfile] [--force] [--verbose] [--posix] [--quiet] outputpath
DESCRIPTIONThe 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.
OPTIONSMost 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 argument 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.
