Thanks for your input.

Yes, perhaps I should just make my life easier by simply using whatever
locale is in place (or not in place). Otherwise it will at best be some
qualified guessing. The locale is only relevant to this application for the
regex functions. For decimal point, date formats and the like I'm relying on
QUSRJOBI.

Best regards,
Erik

Erik,

Be careful with this. There isn't necessarily a 1-to-1 relationship
between CCSID and locale! For example, there are several different
locales (Brazil, Australia, USA) that all use CCSID 37, but have
different attributes for stuff such as date & time format.

Furthermore, people can create (or download/install) their own locales,
they are not restricted to those shipped with the system.

I hope your application will take all of that into account?

the Qshell manual but I'd rather not have to hardcode all that myself.

Eg:
CCSID Corresponding locale
500 /QSYS.LIB/NL_BE.LOCALE
1148 /QSYS.LIB/NL_BE_E.LOCALE
etc

Many thanks.

Best wishes,
Erik
