NAME

Locale::Constants - constants for Locale codes  

SYNOPSIS

    use Locale::Constants;

    $codeset = LOCALE_CODE_ALPHA_2;

 

DESCRIPTION

Locale::Constants defines symbols which are used in the four modules from the Locale-Codes distribution:

        Locale::Language
        Locale::Country
        Locale::Currency
        Locale::Script

Note: at the moment only Locale::Country and Locale::Script support more than one code set.

The symbols defined are used to specify which codes you want to be used:

        LOCALE_CODE_ALPHA_2
        LOCALE_CODE_ALPHA_3
        LOCALE_CODE_NUMERIC

You shouldn't have to "use" this module directly yourself - it is used by the three Locale modules, which in turn export the symbols.  

KNOWN BUGS AND LIMITATIONS

None at the moment.
