NLS is a relatively new technology. As a result of its recent introduction into
the UNIX industry, it is still in the process of development and refinement.
Industry-wide standards have not been firmly established, and thus there are
different implementations of NLS.
In keeping with HP-UX's standardization efforts, HP-UX has undergone some
changes. Some routines that HP-UX offers are HP- UX specific. Other NLS
interfaces are specified by different standards (X/Open, POSIX). The HP-UX
specific routines are currently supported, but will be withdrawn at some time
in the future. Use of the standard interfaces is recommended instead.
