locale

       operations

SYNOPSIS
           @x = sort @y;       # ASCII sorting order
           {
               use locale;
               @x = sort @y;   # Locale-defined sorting order
           }
           @x = sort @y;       # ASCII sorting order again

DESCRIPTION
       This pragma tells the compiler to enable (or disable) the use of POSIX
       locales for built-in operations (LC_CTYPE for regular expressions, and
       LC_COLLATE for string comparison).  Each "use locale" or "no locale"
       affects statements to the end of the enclosing BLOCK.

       See perllocale for more detailed information on how Perl supports
       locales.
