NAME

locale-gen - generate locales on the fly  

DESCRIPTION

The locale-gen utility is used to manage locales on your system. Often times it merely generates a user configurable list of locales, but it can be used to generate a few locales on the fly as needed.

Normally all locales would be generated at build time, but this leads to waste of disk and time as many users really just want a handful on their system.  

OPTIONS

-a, --ask
Ask before generating each locale
-A, --all
Generate all possible locales
-c, --config <config>
Use specified config file rather than default /etc/locale.gen
-d, --destdir <dir>
Look for locale definitions and store generated locale data in the specified directory
-G, --generate <locale>
Only generate the specified locale (implies --keep --update)
-h, --help
Show the help output (imagine that)
-j, --jobs <num>
Generate the specified number of locales in parallel
-k, --keep
Keep all existing locales even if they are not in the config file
-l, --list
List all the locales that we think should exist according to the config
-q, --quiet
Only spit out errors
-u, --update
Only generate locales that do not already exist (normally existing locales are regenerated)
-V, --version
Report the program version
--
To pass custom options directly to the localedef utility, end the locale-gen option list with -- and then everything after that will be passed on through unmolested (the options -c are passed by default)
