SYNTAX

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

DESCRIPTION

       This  program  can  be  called by maintainer scripts when Debian packages are installed or

       configuration  related  to global locale settings.  When variables have no value assigned,
       they are removed from the locale file.  Some basic checks are  performed  to  ensure  that
       requested settings are valid.
