NAME
       validlocale - Test if a given locale is available

SYNTAX
       validlocale 

DESCRIPTION
       Test  if the locale given as argument is a valid locale.  If it isn't, print on stdout the
       string to add to /etc/locale.gen to make locale-gen generate the locale (if it  exists  at
       all).

FILES
       /usr/sbin/validlocale
       /usr/share/i18n/SUPPORTED

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
       DEFAULTCHARSET
              Which  charset  to assume if the given locale is missing from the list of supported
              locales.

EXAMPLES
       If you give a valid locale as parameter, it outputs a string specifying this on stderr:

              % validlocale C
              locale 'C' valid and available

       When given a invalid (not generated or just nonexistent), it outputs a  string  on  stderr
       telling  that  this is an invalid locale, and a string to stdout with the string to add to
       /etc/locale.gen to have this locale generated:

              % validlocale de_AU@euro
              locale 'de_AU@euro' not available
              de_AU@euro ISO-8859-15
