Changing the Language Environment

A number of system operations are affected by the language environment. Some of these operations include collation, time of day and date representation, numeric representation, monetary representation, and message translation. The language environment is determined by the value of the LANG environment variable, and you can change that value with the chlang command. The chlang command can be run from the command line or from SMIT.
