validlocale(8)                (0.1)                validlocale(8)

     NAME
          validlocale - Test if a given locale is available

     SYNTAX
          validlocale <locale>

     DESCRIPTION
          Test if the locale given as argument is a valid locale.  If
          it isn't, print on stdout the string to add to
          /etc/locale.gen to make locale-gen generate the locale (if
          it exists at all).

     FILES
          /usr/sbin/validlocale
          /usr/share/i18n/SUPPORTED

     ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
          DEFAULTCHARSET
               Which charset to assume if the given locale is missing
               from the list of supported locales.

     EXAMPLES
          If you give a valid locale as parameter, it outputs a string
          specifying this on stderr:

               % validlocale C
               locale 'C' valid and available

          When given a invalid (not generated or just nonexistent), it
          outputs a string on stderr telling that this is an invalid
          locale, and a string to stdout with the string to add to
          /etc/locale.gen to have this locale generated:

               % validlocale de_AU@euro
               locale 'de_AU@euro' not available
               de_AU@euro ISO-8859-15
