The settings you can configure within a locale are:
Because the locale in use governs the interpretation of data rather
than its representation, the same data might appear differently when
presented under a different locale.
In particular, electronic mail might
be affected when it is sent from one locale to another; see
``How mail translates between locales''.
The order in which a local character set is sorted.
This is used by the
command and by programs that use regular expressions. See
``Regular expressions and locales''.
The character used to denote a unit of currency and
the format used for printing monetary values.
character classification table
The table used to determine whether a given character is
an upper or lowercase letter, a number, space, or
some other class of symbol.
The format in which the time and date are presented.
The format in which numbers are printed (whether groups
of digits are separated by a delimiter, and the type of delimiter to
use for decimals).
The standard strings to print in place of the
English words ``yes'' and ``no''.
