NAME

  Portuguese, portuguese - Introduction	to Portuguese language support

DESCRIPTION

  This reference page describes	the coded character set	(codeset), locale,
  device, and other support for	the Portuguese language.

  Codesets


  The operating	system supports	the following codesets for Portuguese by
  means	of locales, codeset converters,	or both:

    +  ISO 8859-1 (ISO Latin-1)

       ISO8859-1 is the	string that represents this codeset in the names of
       locales and codeset converters. See iso8859-1(5)	for more information.

    +  ISO 8859-15 (ISO	Latin-9)

       ISO8859-15 is the string	that represents	this codeset in	the names of
       locales and codeset converters. See iso8859-15(5) for more informa-
       tion.

    +  UCS-2, UCS-4, and UTF-8

       UCS-2, UCS-4, and UTF-8 are the strings that represent these encoding
       formats in the names of locales and codeset converters. See Unicode(5)
       for more	information.

    +  PC code pages

       cp437, cp850, cp860, and	cp1252 are the strings that represent these
       encoding	formats	in the names of	codeset	converters. See	code_page(5)
       for more	information.

  See the i18n_intro(5)	and l10n_intro(5) reference pages for introductory
  information on codesets. The iconv_intro(5) reference	page discusses
  codeset converters and how to	use them.

  Portuguese Locales


  The operating	system provides	the following Portuguese locales:

    +  pt_PT.ISO8859-1,	pt_PT.ISO8859-15, and pt_PT.UTF-8 for Portugal

       Of these	locales, only pt_PT.ISO8859-15 and pt_PT.UTF-8 support the
       euro monetary sign.


  You can use the locale command (see locale(1)	to find	out which locales are
  installed on your system. See	i18n_intro(5) for information on setting
  locale from the operating system command line.

  For the Common Desktop Environment (CDE), you	set locale by setting the
  session language. To do this,	use the	Language menu accessed from the
  Options button of the	Login window.

  Keyboards


  The operating	system supports	the following VT style and PC style keyboards
  with Portuguese characters printed on	the keys:

  _____________________________________________
  VT Style (105/108 keys)   PC Style (102 keys)
  _____________________________________________
  LK201-AV		    LK442-PV
  LK201-LV		    LK444-AV
  LK401-AV		    LK471-AV
  LK402-AV		    LK47W-AV
  LK411-AV		    LK97W-AV
  LK412-AV		    PCXAL-AV
  LK461-AV		    PCXAL-FV
  LK46W-AV		    PCXAL-GV
			    PCXAL-KV
			    PCXAL-NV
			    PCCAL-NV
  _____________________________________________

  For your keyboard to function	correctly with your system, you	must load a
  keyboard mapping table (keymap) that is appropriate for your keyboard's
  model	and language. If you load a keymap that	does not correspond to your
  keyboard's model and language, your keyboard behavior	is unpredictable. The
  label	located	on the bottom surface of a keyboard usually specifies its
  model	(five letter code) and language	(two letter code). See the key-
  board(5) reference page for general information on keymaps and instructions
  for loading them in different	formats. The following tables supply
  Portuguese-specific information that you need	when loading keymaps.

  Keyboards can	have keys with characters printed on both the left and right
  half of the keycap. The way you set or use your keyboard to send different
  sets of characters varies from one keyboard model to another.	Furthermore,
  your keyboard	allows you to enter more characters than those printed on the
  keycaps. Refer to the	keyboard(5) reference page for information on how to
  enter	characters.
