GNU gettext utilities

[Top] [Contents] [Index] [ ? ]



In this manual, all mentions of Emacs refers to either GNU Emacs or to XEmacs, which people sometimes call FSF Emacs and Lucid Emacs, respectively.


This limitation is not imposed by GNU gettext, but is for compatibility with the msgfmt implementation on Solaris.


Some system, eg Ultrix, don't have LC_MESSAGES. Here we use a more or less arbitrary value for it, namely 1729, the smallest positive integer which can be represented in two different ways as the sum of two cubes.


When the system does not support setlocale its behavior in setting the locale values is simulated by looking at the environment variables.


Additions are welcome. Send appropriate information to bug-glibc-manual@gnu.org.
