Re: Strange message
You may encounter the following warning message at Perl
perl: warning: Setting locale failed.
perl: warning: Please check that your locale settings:
LC_ALL = "En_US",
LANG = (unset)
are supported and installed on your system.
perl: warning: Falling back to the standard locale ("C").
This means that your locale settings had LC_ALL set to
"En_US" and LANG exists but has no value. Perl tried to
believe you but could not. Instead, Perl gave up and fell
back to the "C" locale, the default locale that is
supposed to work no matter what. This usually means your
locale settings were wrong, they mention locales your
system has never heard of, or the locale installation in
your system has problems (for example, some system files
are broken or missing). There are quick and temporary
fixes to these problems, as well as more thorough and
Temporarily fixing locale problems
