Re: perl and utf8
I reported that Perl complained once I changed to a utf8 locale:
perl: warning: Setting locale failed.
perl: warning: Please check that your locale settings:
LC_ALL = (unset),
LC_CTYPE = "en_CA.UTF-8",
LC_COLLATE = "C",
LANG = "en_CA.UTF-8"
are supported and installed on your system.
perl: warning: Falling back to the standard locale ("C").
My locale settings are:
On Sun, 10 Jan 2010, OBATA Akio suggested:
exactly set LC_COLLATE=C LC_NUMERIC=C or PERL_BADLANG=0.
As you can see above, "LC_COLLATE=C LC_NUMERIC=C" were already the
case. PERL_BADLANG just sweeps the problem under the carpet.
I had written:
and "locale -a" *does* return en_CA.UTF-8 as one of its entries.
But it lies! Or at least, there's no "en_CA.UTF-8" directory
in /usr/share/locale. There *is* however a "en_US.UTF-8",
and if I use that, Perl is happy.
Interestingly, the file /usr/share/locale/locale.alias contains:
While for most purposes now I can use en_US.UTF-8 just as well,
if I wanted my messages in another language I'd be unhappy.
I'm going to play with this a bit more and see if I can
straighten it out a bit better.
