9 Localization
**************

Some units have different values in different locations.  The
localization feature accomodates this by allowing the units database to
specify region dependent definitions.   A locale region in the units
database begins with `!locale' followed by the name of the locale.  The
leading `!' must appear in the first column of the units database.  The
locale region is terminated by `!endlocale'.  The following example
shows how to define a couple units in a locale.

     !locale en_GB
     ton                     brton
     gallon                  brgallon
     !endlocale

   The current locale is specified by the `LOCALE' environment
variable.  Note that the `-c' option only checks the definitions which
are active for the current locale.
