System.Language (gb)

Static Property Language As String

Returns or sets the current language setting.

Examples

PRINT System.Language
en_GB.UTF-8
' Switch to Farsi
System.Language = "fa_IR"

The setting is derived from the user's environment in the following order:

  1. LC_ALL if that's non-empty, otherwise

  2. LANG if that's non-empty, or otherwise

  3. "en_US" is used as a final resort.

The above means that environment settings for LANGUAGE or LC_LANGUAGE and the like are ignored.
