Need a mapping from XP locale to platform specific locale and charset name.
mark this m4
done. Checked in functionality tonight which supports mapping XPLocale->Linux style (LL_CC) Locale string. It doesn't currently deal with multiple encodings for locales.
Can this also support locale to charset name mapping or it's someone else's task? E.g. en_US -> iso-8859-1 I need this for the conversion in order to talk to non unicode API.
hmmm...lets talk later about what needs to be done as far as locale implying a character set. It might be it's own componet or something, but I'm sure we can get this implemented.
** Checked with 4/7/99 source for nsLocaleTest.cpp ** I don't know any direct way to test GetPlatformLocale. See: mozilla/intl/locale/src/unix/nsPosixLocale.cpp The Unix version of LocaleSelfTest includes self-test (option -v) for selected lcoales. The tests return POSIX style locale names, e.g. en_GB, correctly for the following: locale = en-US --> POSIX-style en_US locale = en-GB --> POSIX-style en_GB locale = fr-FR --> POSIX-style fr_FR locale = de-DE --> POSIX-style de_DE locale = ja-JP --> POSIX-style ja_JP I'll mark this fix verified based on these results. Notes to email@example.com & firstname.lastname@example.org: 1. When you check in changes, please specify what files were modified. It will help check on the results immensely! 2. nsLocaleTest -- the Unix version core dumps when run without any argument during nsCollation test, or when run with '-col' option.

If you're talking about the unit test, I should wait until the tree is open for M5. >2. nsLocaleTest -- the Unix version core dumps when run without > any argument during nsCollation test, or when > run with '-col' option. I think there is a confusion. nsLocaleTest it Tague's unit test and I don't think it deals with collation (or you mean LocaleSelfTest on unix?). Again the unit test change won't be checked in until the tree opens for M5. Also it is more clear to file a separate bug for the unit test and mention the bug number here.
About point #1, it's more of a general comment. I would like to see names of files affected. So would others who might be reading this bug report. You're right about point #2. This is not tague's problem. I meant to mention the Unix version of LocaleSelfTest. It is mentioned here only as a side note. It will be filed as a separate bug.
