locale.gen(5)                 File Formats Manual                locale.gen(5)



NAME
       locale.gen - Configuration file for locale-gen

DESCRIPTION
       The  file /etc/locale.gen lists the locales that are to be generated by
       the locale-gen command.

       Each line is of the form:

       <locale> <charset>

       where <locale> is one of the locales given  in  /usr/share/i18n/locales
       and    <charset>   is   one   of   the   character   sets   listed   in
       /usr/share/i18n/charmaps

       The locale-gen command will generate all the locales, placing  them  in
       /usr/lib/locale.
