[AmigaOS 3.1 Command Reference\Locale]
Format: LOCALE [FROM <filename>] [EDIT] [USE] [SAVE]
[PUBSCREEN <public screen name>]
Template: FROM, EDIT/S, USE/S, SAVE/S, PUBSCREEN/K
Purpose: To allow choice of languages available on system.
LOCALE allows you to choose the languages you want to use in your system.
The default setting is USA English; however, you can choose from a number
of other languages.
The Locale editor allows you to select your country of origin, your time
zone, and your preferred languages. When you install your workbench
software, you choose the languages that you want available on your system.
LOCALE without any arguments or with the EDIT argument opens the Locale
editor. The FROM argument lets you specify a file to open. This must be
a file that was previously saved with the Save As menu item of the Locale
For example, if you have saved a special configuration of the Locale editor
to a file in the Presets drawer, you can use the FROM argument to open that
file. If the USE switch is also given, the editor will not be opened, but
the settings in the FROM file will be used. If the SAVE switch is given the
editor will not open, but the settings in the FROM file will be saved.
