locale_alias(7)

Name

locale_alias - locale name aliases and their corresponding canonical locale names

Description

There are two sets of locale name aliases that are accepted and supported in the system:

  1. Locale name aliases that are accepted and mapped to corresponding canonical locale names, if any, during locale selection process as specified in setlocale(3C) and message object or message catalog processing as specified in gettext(1), catopen(3C), and gettext(3C).

    During the mapping process, the codeset name portion of the locale name aliases are normalized by extracting only alphanumeric characters with to-lower case conversions to have a better success ratio of possible mappings. As an example, with this normalization, a locale name alias such as AR_AA.UTF-8 is normalized into AR_AA.utf8 as a search domain value prior to actual comparisons to a set of pre-normalized locale alias names in internal mapping table to find the canonical locale name.

    The supported locale name aliases in machine order are shown below. It is possible that the current system might not have the corresponding canonical locales due to either the locales are not currently installed in the system or not yet supported by Solaris.

    When the current locale is one of the listed canonical locales and there is no matching message object or message catalog file for the current running program to open with using the current locale name, the messaging functions additionally check on the existence of the message object or the message catalog file to open by utilizing the additional locale names shown at below as aliases:
