123If you use a locale that isn't available by default, you should use
124<c>localedef</c> to generate your locale. For instance:
125</p>
126
127<pre caption="Generating a locale using localedef">
128# <i>localedef -c -i en_US -f ISO-8859-15 en_US.ISO-8859-15</i>
129</pre>
130
131<p>
132After having generated the locale, you can export the LANG variable as you see
133fit.

137# <i>export LANG="en_US.ISO-8859-15"</i>
