i5/OS PASE Locales

i5/OS PASE includes a subset of the locales provided by AIX, supporting both 32-bit and 64-bit applications. i5/OS PASE locales are installed as symbolic links in directory /usr/lib/nls/loc.

The full name of any i5/OS PASE locale includes a code set name, which equates to the Coded Character Set Identifier (CCSID) shown in the table. Some locales also have a short name that exclude the code set part of the name. Any locale with a name ending in "@euro" uses the Euro as the currency symbol. Any locale with a name ending in "@preeuro" uses the traditional currency symbol.

Most i5/OS PASE locales are shipped with i5/OS language feature codes. Only locales in the base *CODE load and locales for installed language feature codes will exist on a particular i5/OS system.
