    How to find coded character set for a locale in a Linux session


     set for a locale


    1. From the Linux command prompt, type the locale command:
    locale

    The output of "locale" should be something like this:

    [root@kafka02 ~]# locale
    LANG=en_US.UTF-8
    LC_CTYPE="en_US.UTF-8"
    LC_NUMERIC="en_US.UTF-8"
    LC_TIME="en_US.UTF-8"
    LC_COLLATE="en_US.UTF-8"
    LC_MONETARY="en_US.UTF-8"
    LC_MESSAGES="en_US.UTF-8"
    LC_PAPER="en_US.UTF-8"
    LC_NAME="en_US.UTF-8"
    LC_ADDRESS="en_US.UTF-8"
    LC_TELEPHONE="en_US.UTF-8"
    LC_MEASUREMENT="en_US.UTF-8"
    LC_IDENTIFICATION="en_US.UTF-8"
    LC_ALL=
    [root@kafka02 ~]#

    2. Find the "codeset name" associated with the locale:
    locale charmap

    The output of "locale charmap" is the "codeset name" for the locale, and it should be something like this:

    [root@kafka02 ~]# locale charmap
    UTF-8
    [root@kafka02 ~]#
