non-ASCII characters in /etc/locales.alias ?
I've been looking at /etc/locales.alias and the possibility of
auto-generating it from locale-gen; and noticed that it has non-ASCII
characters in it: in particular in
I think using non-ASCII characters in /etc/locales.alias is dodgy; it
would break in non- ISO-8859-1 environments. Should this be supported?
Should /etc/locales.alias have a tag describing its encoding?
(e.g. an emacs-type tag)
Does anyone use these aliases?
/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/locales/locales.alias says these are defined on
HPUX; are they in real use?
