I'm no expert, but after reading perllocale it seems that checking the LANG environmetal variable might relevant to your issue... It is possible to override the language selection of a locale after the fact within many Unix systems. Sometimes I've seen an LC_LANG variable as well, or NLS_LANG (I think Oracle uses NLS_ variables for instance)

Might you examine your %ENV{} in the running Perl program and report back the LC_ variables? And anything that contains lang? These usually are locale related if my memory serves.

Here's some quick code that might work -- reply back with the output if your still 'bugged' by the sort order and I'll be happy to take a closer look. I know Spanish (Madrid, Spain) somewhat well and understand what your trying to achieve.

foreach my $env (keys %ENV){ if($env =~ /^LC_/i || $env =~ /lang/i){ print "$env => $ENV{$env}\n"; } }

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
