NAMElocale.alias - Locale name alias data base
DESCRIPTIONThe locale.alias database file (/etc/locale.alias) is used by the locale command and the X Window System It describes aliases for the locales, with each line being of the form
Where <localename> is in the POSIX format: xx_YY.CHARSET.
The first two letters xx are the ISO-639 Language code,
the next two YY are the ISO-3166 Country code, and the Charset is one of the character sets (listed in /usr/share/i18n/charsets ). The aliases can be free text; they are normally the English language name, or simpler versions of the POSIX locale name.
Lines beginning with Hash ("#") are treated as comments and ignored.
