     NAME
          update-locale - Modify global locale settings

     SYNTAX
          update-locale [OPTIONS] [var=locale | var] [...]

     DESCRIPTION
          This program can be called by maintainer scripts when Debian
          packages are installed or removed, it updates the
          /etc/default/locale file to reflect changes in system con-
          figuration related to global locale settings.  When vari-
          ables have no value assigned, they are removed from the
          locale file.  Some basic checks are performed to ensure that
          requested settings are valid.

               Display an help message and exit.
