Great Dennis, thanks. That seems to be what I'm looking for.
My user profile uses *SYSVAL for the locale, and the sys attribute is *NONE.
So for locale specific stuff this means I'm getting '.' for decimal point
whereas the swedish locale, had my system been been set up to use it, really
is ','. So I can't use my current locale, I have to find out which one
My need is basically that I want to enable users who are using different
CCSIDs to be able to use locale specific functions, eg the regex functions.
(Curiousity: regerror() ignores the locale setting and always seem to return
data in CCSID 37 so for that I also have to convert the data back to
whatever CCSID the user job is running under).

No need to hard code them (nor store them at all, for that matter).
You can use QUSLOBJ to obtain the locale names, and their associated CCSID.
Object type is *LOCALE.
Fear less, hope more,
eat less, chew more,
whine less, breathe more,
talk less, say more,
hate less, love more,
and all good things will be yours.
-- Swedish proverb
Does anybody of a place on the system where one can find a specific
object for a particular CCSID or language? There is such a table
the Qshell manual but I'd rather not have to hardcode all that myself.
