Example multi-byte character set on Solaris

The following steps describe how to configure Solaris to use the Japanese character set:

  1. Install the necessary components for Japanese on to the host machine using the Solaris CD.
  2. Set the LANG and LC_ALL environment variables to ja_JP PCK. This uses SJIS encoding.
    Note: You may have to set the LANG in the host machine's default settings file and reboot it to make the changes take effect.
  3. Make sure that the file $OMNIHOME/platform/arch/locales/locales.dat has the following entry:
    locale = ja_JP PCK, japanese, sjis

    Where ja_JP PCK is the vendor locale, japanese is the Sybase language, and sjis is the Sybase character set.
