locale.gen - Configuration file for locale-gen
DESCRIPTIONThe file /etc/locale.gen lists the locales that are to be generated by the locale-gen command.
Each line is of the form:
where <locale> is one of the locales given in /usr/share/i18n/locales and <charset> is one of the character sets listed in /usr/share/i18n/charmaps
The locale-gen command will generate all the locales, placing them in /usr/lib/locale.
