       Portuguese, portuguese - Introduction to Portuguese language support

       This  reference	page  describes	 the  coded  character	set (codeset),
       locale, device, and other support for the Portuguese language.

       The operating system supports the following codesets for Portuguese  by
       means of locales, codeset converters, or both: ISO 8859-1 (ISO Latin-1)

	      ISO8859-1	 is  the  string  that	represents this codeset in the
	      names of locales and codeset converters.	See  iso8859-1(5)  for
	      more information.	 ISO 8859-15 (ISO Latin-9)

	      ISO8859-15  is  the  string  that represents this codeset in the
	      names of locales and codeset converters. See  iso8859-15(5)  for
	      more information.	 UTF-16, UCS-4, and UTF-8

	      UTF-16,  UCS-4,  and  UTF-8 are the strings that represent these
	      encoding formats in the names of locales and codeset converters.
	      See Unicode(5) for more information.  PC code pages

	      cp437,  cp850,  cp860, and cp1252 are the strings that represent
	      these encoding formats in the names of codeset  converters.  See
	      code_page(5) for more information.

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

   Portuguese Locales
       The   operating	system	provides  the  following  Portuguese  locales:
       pt_PT.ISO8859-1, pt_PT.ISO8859-15, and pt_PT.UTF-8 for Portugal

       The pt_PT.ISO8859-15 and pt_PT.UTF-8 locales use the  euro  symbol  for
       currency.  Because  the pt_PT.ISO8859-1 locale repertoire does not con‐
       tain the euro symbol, it continues to use the escudo currency symbol.

       You can use the locale command (see locale(1) to find out which locales
       are installed on your system. See i18n_intro(5) for information on set‐
       ting 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 with Portuguese characters printed on the keys:

       VT Style (105/108 keys)	 PC Style (102 keys)
       LK411-AV			 LK471-AV
       LK412-AV			 LK47W-AV
       LK461-AV			 LK97W-AV
       LK46W-AV			 PCXAL-AV


       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 Portuguese-specific information that you need when loading keymaps.

					   PCCAL-NV	  portuguese pcxalgv

       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.
