     16  <para>The file <filename>/etc/locale.conf</filename> file configures
     17  system-wide locale settings. The basic file format of locale.conf is a
     18  newline-separated list of variable assignments. It is possible to source this
     19  configuration file from shell scripts, but it should never contain any shell
     20  script features beyond variable assignments. The
     21  <filename>locale.conf</filename> man page contains information about the
     22  function of this file. Setting up this file properly results in:</para>

    7272  <para>This results in a final locale setting of <quote>en_US.UTF-8</quote>.
