        locale.alias - Locale name alias data base


        The  locale.alias  database  file  (/etc/locale.alias)  is  used by the
        locale command and the X Window System It  describes  aliases  for  the
        locales, with each line being of the form
        <alias> <localename>
        Where  <localename>  is  in the POSIX format: xx_YY.CHARSET.  The first
        two letters xx are the ISO-639 Language code,
         the next two YY are the ISO-3166 Country code, and the Charset is  one
        of  the   character  sets  (listed  in /usr/share/i18n/charsets ).  The
        aliases can be free text; they are normally the English language  name,
        or simpler versions of the POSIX locale name.
        Lines beginning with Hash ("#") are treated as comments and ignored.
