locale.alias - Locale name alias data base
The locale.alias database file (/usr/share/locale/locale.alias) is used by thelocale
command and the X Window System
It describes aliases for the locales, with each line being of theform
Where <localename> is in the POSIX format: xx_YY.CHARSET.The first two letters xx are the ISO-639 Language code,
the next two YY are the ISO-3166 Country code, and the Charset is one of the character sets (listed in /usr/share/i18n/charsets).The aliases can be free text; they are normally the English languagename, or simpler versions of the POSIX locale name.
Lines beginning with Hash ("#") are treated as comments and ignored.
