sys_get_locale

Get or set the system locale

Wrappers to Sys.getlocale and Sys.setlocale for getting and setting the system locale.

Usage
sys_get_locale(simplify = FALSE, remove_empty_categories = TRUE)

sys_set_locale(..., l = list())

Arguments
simplify

If TRUE, the locale settings are returned as a character vector, otherwise a list.

remove_empty_categories

if TRUE, don't include empty categories.

...

Name-value pairs of locale categories to set.

l

A list, as an alternative method of passing local categories to set.

Value

A named list or vector giving the system locale names. sys_set_locale invisibly returns the locale settings *before* making changes (like setwd and options do).
