lang — description of supported languages


HP-UX NLS (Native Language Support) provides support for the processing and customs requirements of a variety of languages. To enable NLS support for a particular language, a language definition must exist on the HP-UX system. Invoking the command locale -a (see locale(1)) displays information regarding which languages are currently supported on a particular HP-UX system.

The default processing language for HP-UX is POSIX. POSIX provides an environment in which processing occurs without NLS functionality. This environment is based on the 7-bit-coded USASCII character set.

POSIX and C are equivalent and can be used interchangeably.
