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.
