       Greek, greek - Introduction to Greek language support

       This  reference	page  describes the codeset, locale, device, and other
       kinds of support for the Greek language.

       The operating system supports the following coded character sets (code‐
       sets) for Greek: ISO 8859-7 (ISO Latin/Greek)

	      ISO8859-7	 is  the  string  that	represents this codeset in the
	      names of locales and codeset converters.	See  iso8859-7(5)  for
	      information  on  the ISO Latin/Greek codeset.  PC code-page for‐
	      mats (supported through codeset converters only)

	      cp737, cp869, and cp1253 are the strings	that  represent	 these
	      encoding	formats	 in  the  names	 of  codeset  converters.  See
	      code_page(5) for information on PC code pages.   UTF-16,	UCS-4,
	      and  UTF-8 encoding formats (file data supported through codeset
	      converters only)

	      UTF-16, UCS-4, and UTF-8 are the strings	that  represent	 these
	      encoding	formats	 in  the names of codeset converters. See Uni‐
	      code(5) for information on these encoding formats.

       See i18n_intro(5) and l10n_intro(5)  for	 introductory  information  on
       codesets. See iconv_intro(5) for a discussion of codeset converters and
       how to use them.

       The  operating	system	 provides   the	  following   Greek   locales:

	      This    locale	is    also    available	   under    the	  name
	      el_GR.ISO8859-7@ucs4 for applications that need to convert  data
	      between ISO8859-7 file format and UCS-4 process code for charac‐
	      ter classification operations.  el_GR.UTF-8

	      UTF-8 locales  support  file  code  and  internal	 process  code
	      according	 to  ISO  10646	 and  Unicode standards. File code, in
	      UTF-8 locales, may include characters encoded  in	 more  than  1
	      byte;  therefore,	 use  these  locales  in applications that can
	      process multibyte data.

       The el_GR.UTF-8 locale uses the euro symbol for currency.  Because  the
       el_GR.ISO8859-7	locale repertoire does not contain the euro symbol, it
       continues to use the drachma currency symbol.  See euro(5).

       You can use the locale command (see locale(1))  to  find	 out  if  this
       locale  is  installed on your system. See i18n_intro(5) for information
       on setting a locale from the operating system command line.

       In the Common Desktop Environment (CDE), you need to set	 a  locale  by
       setting	the session language. To do this, from the Options menu of the
       Login window, choose Language. Then, from the  Language	options	 menu,
       choose a session language.

       The  operating system supports the following VT-style and PC-style key‐
       boards for Greek:

       VT-Style (105/108 keys)	 PC-Style (102 keys)
       LK411			 LK471-BH
       LK461			 LK97W-BH
       Greek LK471		 PCXAL-HH

       For your keyboard to function correctly with your system, you must load
       a  keyboard  mapping  table  (keymap) that is appropriate for your key‐
       board's model and language. If you load a keymap that does  not	corre‐
       spond  to your keyboard's model and language, your keyboard behavior is
       unpredictable. The label located on the bottom surface  of  a  keyboard
       usually specifies its model (five-letter code) and language (two-letter
       code). See keyboard(5) for general information on keymaps and  instruc‐
       tions for loading them in different formats.  The following tables sup‐
       ply Greek-specific information that you need when loading keymaps.

       Selecting keymaps in xkb format:

       For VT-Style		For PC-Style
       Keyboard:      Select:	Keyboard:      Select:
       LK411	      lk411	LK471-BH       lk471bh or lk471
       LK461	      lk461	LK97W-BH       lk97wbh or lk97w
				PCXAL-HH       pcxalhh
				PCXAL-LH       pcxallh

       Selecting keymaps in xmodmap format:

       For PC-Style
       Keyboard:      Select:
       PCXAL-HH	      greek pcxalhh
       PCXAL-LH	      greek pcxallh

       Keyboards can have keys with characters printed on both	the  left  and
       right  half of the keycap. The way you set or use your keyboard to send
       different sets of characters varies from one keyboard model to another.
       Furthermore,  your  keyboard  allows  you to enter more characters than
       those printed on the keycaps. See keyboard(5) for information on how to
       enter characters.

       For  information on setting up and configuring printers for non-English
       text, see i18n_printing(5).

       PostScript fonts available for languages supported by  the  ISO	8859-7
       codeset are listed in iso8859-7(5).

       Commands: locale(1)
