      nlio - control Native Language I/O

      nlio [-c [flag]] [-n] [-s] [-t [tb]]

      nlio controls NLIO for the current standard input device.	 Without
      arguments, nlio reports the settings.  If the standard input is
      neither a terminal nor a printer, or is inaccessible, nlio tries the
      current standard output.	If both fail, it terminates with an error
      message.	nlio writes normal messages on the standard output and error
      messages on the standard error output.  It tries to do all of the
      specified options one by one from left to right, even if some fail.

      -c[flag]	Specify the scope of multi-byte data handling (parsing data
		and conversion) where flag is any of the following:

		   i	     Input only
		   o	     Output only
		   b	     Both input and output
		   io	     Same as b
		   n	     Neither input nor output

		If flag is not specified, nlio prints the current status of
		i, o, b, or n.

      -n	Check whether NLIO is available for the terminal or the
		printer.  If it is available, nlio returns exit code 0; if
		not, 1.	 No messages are displayed.

      -s	Print the name of the NLIO server running on the terminal or
		the printer.

      -t[tb]	Specify terminal behavior or printer behavior.	If tb is
		omitted, nlio prints the name of the current terminal
		behavior or printer behavior (see nlioinit(1M)).

      For the terminal server, when the login shell is terminated the
      settings are reset to -cb -t <initial tb>.

    Environment Variables
      LANG determines the language in which messages are displayed.

    International Code Set Support
      Single-byte and multi-byte character code sets are supported.

      nlio returns exit code 0 if successful and 1 if it failed.
