NAME

localedef - compile locale definition files 

SYNOPSIS

localedef[-fcharmapfile][-iinputfile][--force][--verbose][--posix][--quiet]outputpath
localedef --version
localedef --help 

DESCRIPTION

Thelocaledefprogram reads the indicatedcharmapandinputfiles, compiles them to a form usable by thelocale(7)functions in the C library, and places the six output files in theoutputpathdirectory or in one archive.

If nocharmapfileis given,POSIXis used by default.If noinputfileis given, or if it is given as-,localedefreads from standard input. 

OPTIONS

Most options can have either short or long forms. If multiple shortoptions are used, they can be combined in one word (e.g.-cv).If an option takes an argument, the argument can be given separatelyas the next word, or it can be written as option=argument.
-f charmapfile, --charmap=charmapfile
Specify the file that defines the symbolic character names that areused by the input file. If the file is in the default directory forcharacter maps, it is not necessary to specify the full pathname.This default directory is printed bylocaledef --help.
-i inputfile, --inputfile=inputfile
Specify the locale definition file to compile. Ifinputfileis not absolute,localedefwill also look in the directory specified by the environment variableI18NPATHand in the default directory for locale definition files. This defaultdirectory is printed bylocaledef --help.
-c, --force
Write the output files even if warnings were generated about the inputfile.
-v, --verbose
Generate extra warnings about errors that are normally ignored.
--quiet
Suppress all notifications and warnings, and report only fatal errors.
--posix
