LOCALE-GEN(8)                        System Manager's Manual                        LOCALE-GEN(8)

       locale-gen — generates localisation files from templates


       This manual page documents briefly the locale-gen command.

       By  default,  the locale package which provides the base support for localisation of libc-
       based programs does not contain usable localisation files for  every  supported  language.
       This limitation has became necessary because of the substantial size of such files and the
       large number of languages supported by libc. As a result, Debian uses a special  mechanism
       where  we prepare the actual localisation files on the target host and distribute only the
       templates for them.

       locale-gen is a program that reads the file /etc/locale.gen and invokes localedef for  the
       chosen  localisation profiles.  Run locale-gen after you have modified the /etc/locale.gen


       The main configuration file, which has a simple format: every line that is not  empty  and
       does not begin with a # is treated as a locale definition that is to be built.

       localedef(1), locale(1), locale.gen(5).
