Subject i18n support
Date Sun, 25 Mar 2007 19:09:42 GMT

I have a module that calls a number of libraries that need to run under
a locale other than 'C'.

What are Apache's limitations with respect to the locale it runs under? I
see that setting LANG=en_US.UTF-8 in Apache's environment works but
LANG=de_DE.ISO-8859-1 does not.

I understand that allowing the server to run in an arbitrary locale
is hard to support but certainly there must be support for i18n text
processing. Where is the line drawn?

Ideally I would like the administrator to be able to choose a locale
(e.g. de_DE.ISO-8859-1@euro) but if I can only do UTF-8 technically I
would be satisfied.
