LC_NUMERIC is responsible for grouping of numbers, especially it is the
place to say wether "," or "." separates the parts of a decimalnumber.
3 / 2 = 1,5 in germany
= 1.5 in the UK (and ...)
the definition of LC_NUMERIC for de_DE (for me in
/usr/share/i18n/locales/de_DE) looks like:
and for POSIX (that is sometimes named C and is defined as the default
# This is the POSIX Locale definition for
# the LC_NUMERIC category.
If no locale is set (and the application is ready for i18n) the default
locale C (or POSIX) is used.
Hope this helps
right now the web page is in german only
but this will change as time goes by ;-)
