locale - get locale-specific information


locale [option]
locale [option] -a
locale [option] -m
locale [option] name...


The locale command displays information about the current locale, or all locales, on
standard output.

When invoked without arguments, locale displays the current locale settings for each
locale category (see locale(5)), based on the settings of the environment variables that
control the locale (see locale(7)). Values for variables set in the environment are
printed without double quotes, implied values are printed with double quotes.

If either the -a or the -m option (or one of their long-format equivalents) is specified,
the behavior is as follows:

-a, --all-locales
Display a list of all available locales. The -v option causes the
LC_IDENTIFICATION metadata about each locale to be included in the output.

-m, --charmaps
Display the available charmaps (character set description files).

The locale command can also be provided with one or more arguments, which are the names of
locale keywords (for example, date_fmt, ctype-class-names, yesexpr, or decimal_point) or
locale categories (for example, LC_CTYPE or LC_TIME). For each argument, the following is

* For a locale keyword, the value of that keyword to be displayed.

* For a locale category, the values of all keywords in that category are displayed.

When arguments are supplied, the following options are meaningful:

-c, --category-name
For a category name argument, write the name of the locale category on a separate
line preceding the list of keyword values for that category.

For a keyword name argument, write the name of the locale category for this keyword
on a separate line preceding the keyword value.

This option improves readability when multiple name arguments are specified. It
can be combined with the -k option.

-k, --keyword-name
For each keyword whose value is being displayed, include also the name of that
keyword, so that the output has the format:


The locale command also knows about the following options:

-v, --verbose
Display additional information for some command-line option and argument

-?, --help
Display a summary of command-line options and arguments and exit.

Display a short usage message and exit.

-V, --version
Display the program version and exit.
