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  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.
