Using International Software
Read this chapter if you are:
A general user of internationalized commands and
This chapter covers information and tasks you will need to deal with in order
to use internationalized software successfully. The information and the tasks
are minimal because, in most situations, you will be receiving help from your
system administrator for the following tasks:
• Advising on optimal use of NLS features
• Ordering NLS software
• Installing and updating the operating system
• Configuring the system
• Installing and initializing additional software
• Maintaining system software
NLS Environmental Variables
As a user, you interact with NLS through the selection of a specific linguistic
environment. While in a non-internationalized program this environment
is static (defined by the programmer who developed the software), in an
internationalized program the linguistic environment is a variable (or a set of
variables) that you, the user, can select or change. Your environment is defined
by the environment variables shown in Table 3-1. By setting these variables
(or using the system default values), you indicate to the system your unique
requirements for various aspects of NLS capabilities.
