Converts a locale source file into a binary locale file. The binary locale file is used by utilities and C routines that are dependent on the setting of the international environment logical names. Format: LOCALE COMPILE sourcefile
|1 - Parameter|
sourcefile The file specification of the locale source file. This file defines each category of the locale. The default file type for the source file is .LSRC.
|2 - Qualifiers|
2.1 - /CHARACTER_DEFINITIONS
/[NO]CHARACTER_DEFINITIONS[=filename] /NOCHARACTER_DEFINITIONS (D) Specifies a character-set description file (charmap) for the locale. This file maps characters to their actual character encodings. If a charmap is not specified, no symbolic names (other than collating symbols defined in a collating symbol keyword) are allowed in the locale source file. The default file type for a charmap is .CMAP.
2.2 - /DISPLAY
/DISPLAY[=[NO]HOLE] /DISPLAY=NOHOLE (D) Used with certain Chinese locales and terminals to specify that 4-byte characters occupy four printing positions (columns) on the terminal display. The default value (/DISPLAY=NOHOLE) specifies that 4-byte characters occupy two printing positions.
2.3 - /IGNORE=WARNINGS
/[NO]IGNORE=WARNINGS /NOIGNORE=WARNINGS (D) Generates an output file even if LOCALE COMPILE issues warning messages. Use the /IGNORE qualifier with caution because warning messages can indicate user errors that you might want to fix before using the resulting locale file.
2.4 - /LISTING
/[NO]LISTING[=filename] /LISTING[=filename] (Batch Default) /NOLISTING (Interactive Default) Specifies the name of the listing file. The /SHOW qualifier controls the information included in the listing file. If the filename is omitted, the default is sourcefile.LIS.
2.5 - /OUTPUT
/[NO]OUTPUT[=filename] /NOOUTPUT (D) Specifies the name of the output file. If the /OUTPUT qualifier is omitted, the default output filename is sourcefile.LOCALE. Public locales are stored in the directory defined by the logical name SYS$I18N_LOCALE. If the output file is in any other location, the locale is private. If /NOOUTPUT is specified, the compiler does not create an output file, even if the compilation is successful.
2.6 - /SHOW
/SHOW[=(keyword[,...])]) /SHOW=(SOURCE,TERMINAL) (D) Use /SHOW together with /LIST to control the information included in the listing file. You can specify the following keywords: ALL Include all information. BRIEF Include a summary of the symbol table. [NO]CHARACTER_DEFINITIONS Include/omit the charmap file. NONE Do not print any information. If NONE is specified, the listing file only contains the error messages generated. [NO]SOURCE Include/omit a listing of the source file. [NO]STATISTICS Include/omit compiler performance information. [NO]SYMBOLS Include/omit a listing of the charmap symbol table. [NO]TERMINAL Display compiler messages at the terminal.
