<para>The <filename>/etc/locale.conf</filename> file
configures system-wide locale settings.</para>
<para>The basic file format of
<filename>locale.conf</filename> is a
newline-separated list of environment-like
shell-compatible variable assignments. It is possible
to source the configuration from shell scripts,
however, beyond mere variable assignments no shell
features are supported, allowing applications to read
the file without implementing a shell compatible
execution engine.</para>

and are inherited by every service or user, unless
overriden or unset by individual programs or
individual users.</para>
<para>Depending on the operating system other
configuration files might be checked for locale
configuration as well, however only as
fallback.</para>
