Query Given Locale

Description

Provides some basic information on a given locale identifier.

Usage

1

Arguments

locale

NULL or "" for default locale, or a single string with locale identifier.

Details

With this function you may obtain some basic information on any provided locale identifier, even if it is unsupported by ICU or if you pass a malformed locale identifier (the one that is not e.g. of the form Language_Country). See stringi-locale for discussion.

This function does nothing complicated. In many cases it is similar to a call to as.list(stri_split_fixed(locale, "_", 3L)[[1]]), with locale case mapped. It may be used, however, to get insight on how ICU understands a provided locale identifier.

Value

Returns a list with the following named character strings: Language, Country, Variant, and Name, being their underscore separated combination.
