Solaris Transition Guide


Most of the system commands in the Solaris 7 operating environment have been messaged. Many of these commands can pass through multibyte character representations. The increased number of messaged commands makes localization efforts easier.

The installtxt(1) command has been replaced with msgfmt(1). Use the new xgettext(1) command to extract messages.

Changes to strftime(3C) affect date and time formats. Shell programs that rely on the output format of the date(1) command will have to be updated to handle the new format.

chrtbl(8) and catdef(8) are replaced by localedef(1).
