Installing Optional Locales
The procedure for installing additional software such as an· NLS locale is
explained in detail in the section "Updating HP-UX" of HP-UX System
Administmtion Tasks.
Normally, HP-UX is shipped with all supported locales. Not all coded
character sets are supported on all peripherals, however, so peripherals which
support the desired character set must also be obtained. After a locale is
installed, the NLS locale-specific information can be used by any application
program requesting it.
Peripheral Configuration
When you purchase peripherals for use in a non-ASCII or multiple language
environment, you should consider the coded character sets that your
peripherals will need to support. Hewlett-Packard provides printers, plotters,
keyboards and terminals which support HP single- and multi-byte coded
character sets, as well other standards (such as the ISO 8859-1 coded character
set for Europe). In some cases, you may need special software in order to
operate these peripherals, such as the NLIO system for Asian peripherals.
