locale - Perl pragma to use and avoid POSIX locales for built-in operations


@x = sort @y; # ASCII sorting order { use locale; @x = sort @y; # Locale-defined sorting order } @x = sort @y; # ASCII sorting order again


This pragma tells the compiler to enable (or disable) the use of POSIX locales for built-in operations (LC_CTYPE for regular expressions, and LC_COLLATE for string comparison). Each "use locale" or "no locale" affects statements to the end of the enclosing BLOCK. See the perllocale manpage for more detailed information on how Perl supports locales. 2000-03-04 Last change: perl v5.6.0 1
