- Subject: PR libc/3606: Correcting the locale.texi documentation
The bug report comment on the following part of the glibc manual.
The glibc manual says ("Categories of Activities that Locales Affect"):
This is not an environment variable; it is only a macro that you
can use with `setlocale' to set a single locale for all purposes.
Setting this environment variable overwrites all selections by the
other `LC_*' variables or `LANG'.
As far as I can see, LC_ALL is fetched from the environment, and thus
is an environment variable:
% LANG=C LC_ALL=nn_NO locale charmap
% LANG=nn_NO LC_ALL=C locale charmap
What is the documentation ment to say?
