  Turkish, turkish - Introduction to Turkish language support


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


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

    +  ISO 8859-9 (ISO Latin 5)

       ISO8859-9 is the	string that represents this codeset in names of
       locales and codeset converters. See iso8859-9(5)	for more information.

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

       UCS-2, UCS-4, ucs4, and UTF-8 are the strings that represent these
       encoding	formats	in names of locales and	codeset	converters. See
       Unicode(5) for more information.

    +  PC code pages

       cp850, cp852, cp857, and	cp1254 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.


  The operating	system provides	the following locale for the Turkish language
  and Turkey:

    +  tr_TR.ISO8859-9

       The tr_TR.ISO8859-9@ucs4	variant	of this	locale is also available for
       applications that need to convert file data in ISO8859-9	format to
       UCS-4 process code in order to perform certain character-
       classification operations.

  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.


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

  VT Style (105/108 keys)   PC Style (102 keys)
  LK401-BU_DP		    LK471-BU
  LK401-BU_TW		    LK97W-BU
  LK401-BW_DP		    PCXAL-JU
  LK401-BW_TW		    PCXAL-LU
  LK461-DP		    PCXAL-MU

  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
  Turkish-specific information that you	need when loading keymaps.

  Selecting keymaps in xkb format:

  For VT Style		   For PC Style
  Keyboard:	 Select:   Keyboard:	  Select:
  LK401-BU_DP	 lk401	   LK471-BU	  lk471bu or lk471
  LK401-BU_TW	 lk401	   LK97W-BU	  lk97wbu or lk97w
  LK401-BW_DP	 lk401	   PCXAL-JU	  pcxalju
  LK401-BW_TW	 lk401	   PCXAL-LU	  pcxallu
  LK461-DP	 lk461	   PCXAL-MU	  pcxalmu
  LK461-TW	 lk461

  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.


  The PostScript fonts available for languages supported by the	ISO 8859-9
  codeset are listed on	the iso8859-9(5) reference page.

  Refer	to the i18n_printing(5)	reference page for discussion of printer sup-
  port options.
