Hello, devoted!

"use locale" should be something easy, but not to me. Following script should populate 2 equal list under my locale (et_EE.UTF-8), but no.

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use locale; use POSIX; print setlocale( LC_CTYPE ), "\n\n";; my @real = qw(R S Š Z); my @fake = 'R'..'Z'; print "@real\n"; print "@fake\n"; __END__ et_EE.UTF-8 R S Š Z R S T U V W X Y Z

To test locale, i print it with POSIX setlocale , and perl seems see my locale pretty well. But setlocale does not bother about locale-pragma, same output without it too. So, why "use locale" has no influence on alphabet and how to change it?

Nõnda, WK
