NAME
       locale - Perl pragma to use or avoid POSIX locales for built-in
       operations

SYNOPSIS
           @x = sort @y;      # Native-platform/Unicode code point sort order
           {
               use locale;
               @x = sort @y;  # Locale-defined sort order
           }
           @x = sort @y;      # Native-platform/Unicode code point sort order
                              # again

DESCRIPTION
       This pragma tells the compiler to enable (or disable) the use of POSIX
       locales for built-in operations (for example, LC_CTYPE for regular
       expressions, LC_COLLATE for string comparison, and LC_NUMERIC for
       number formatting).  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.

       On systems that don't have locales, this pragma will cause your
       operations to behave as if in the "C" locale; attempts to change the
       locale will fail.
