NAME

  Catalan, catalan - Introduction to Catalan language support

DESCRIPTION

  This reference page describes	the codeset, locale, device, and other kinds
  of support for the Catalan language.

  Codesets


  The operating	system supports	the following coded character sets (codeset)
  for Catalan:

    +  ISO 8859-1 (ISO Latin-1)

       ISO8859-1 is the	string that represents this codeset in the names of
       locales and other system	files. See iso8859-1(5)	for more information
       about the ISO Latin-1 codeset.

    +  ISO 8859-15 (ISO	Latin-9)

       ISO8859-15 is the string	that represents	this codeset in	the names of
       locales and other system	files. See iso8859-15(5) for more information
       about the ISO Latin-9 codeset.

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

       UCS-2, UCS-4, ucs4, and UTF-8 are the strings that represent these
       codesets	in the names of	system files. See Unicode(5) for more infor-
       mation about these encoding formats.

    +  PC code-page formats

       cp437, cp850, and cp1250	are the	strings	that represent these encoding
       formats in the names of system files. See code_page(5) for more infor-
       mation about these encoding formats.

  See i18n_intro(5) and	l10n_intro(5) for introductory information on
  codesets and iconv_intro(5) for information on codeset conversion.

  Locales


  The operating	system supports	the following Catalan locales:

    +  ca_ES.ISO8859-1,	ca_ES.ISO8859-15, and ca_ES.UTF-8, for Spain

  Of these locales, only ca_ES.ISO8859-15 and ca_ES.UTF-8 support the euro
  currency 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.

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

  Keyboards and	Printers


  Keyboard and printer support for Catalan is the same as for Spanish.	Refer
  to the Spanish(5) reference page for this information.
