LOCALE(1)		FreeBSD	General	Commands Manual		     LOCALE(1)

NAME
     locale -- get locale-specific information

SYNOPSIS
     locale [-a	| -m]
     locale [-ck] [keyword ...]

DESCRIPTION
     The locale	utility	is supposed to provide most locale specific informa-
     tion to the standard output.

     When locale is invoked without arguments, it will print out a summary of
     the current locale	environment depending on environment variable settings
     and internal status.

     When locale is invoked with arguments and no options specified, it	will
     print out keyword's value determined using	the current locale settings.

     The following options are available:

     -a	     Write names of all	available locales.  While looking for locales,
	     locale will respect the PATH_LOCALE environment variable, and use
	     it	instead	of the system's	default	locale directory.

     -m	     Write names of all	available charmaps.

     -k	     Write the name and	value of the selected keywords.

     -c	     Write the category	name for the selected keywords.

IMPLEMENTATION DETAILS
     Special (FreeBSD specific)	keyword	list can be used to retrieve human
     readable list of available	keywords.

DIAGNOSTICS
     The locale	utility	exits 0	on success, and	>0 if an error occurs.

BUGS
     Since FreeBSD does	not support charmaps in	their POSIX meaning, locale
     emulates the m option via CODESETs	listing	of all available locales.
