NAME

       locale-gen.conf - Configuration file for locale-gen

DESCRIPTION

       The file /etc/belocs/locale-gen.conf customize how locales generated by
       locale-gen are stored onto disk.

       This file is executed by locale-gen as a shell  fragment,  which  means
       that  errors  in  this  file  can break locale-gen.  It can contain the
       following variable definitioos, of the form <variable>=<value>.

VARIABLES

       ARCHIVE=(yes|no)
              If set to yes, locale data are  stored  into  a  single  archive
              /usr/lib/locale/locale-archive.    Otherwise,  locale  data  are
              stored in /usr/lib/locale/<locale_name>/LC_* files.  (Default is
              no)

       PURGE=(yes|no)
              If  set to yes, locale data are first removed when locale-gen is
              run.  This is the behavior of the locales package.  (Default  is
              no)

       ALIASES=file
              Specify  a  file  name  containing  locale aliases.  (Default is
              /etc/locale.alias)

       GLIBC_MAGIC=(0x20000828|0x20031115|0x20051014|auto)
              In order to ensure compatibility between compiled data  and  GNU
              libc  functions, a magic number is stored in locale data, and if
              it does not  match  GNU  libc  one,  locale  data  are  ignored.
              Current  locale-gen  program  can write compiled data with magic
              numbers 0x20000828 (for 2.1.96 <= GNU libc <= 2.3.2), 0x20031115
              (for  GNU  libc  >=  2.3.3,  which  is  the  default in etch) or
              0x20031115 (for GNU libc CVS, which is not used yet).   If  this
              variable  is set to auto, a locale is generated by the localedef
              command shipped in GNU libc, and the magic number  is  extracted
              from this locale.  (Default is auto)
