Thanks Petr, but that requires libc, hence the reason it can't be
added to the sysutils unit. That was my understanding of the locale
issue, based an a message I posted some months ago. Also, those libc
API calls read the binary form of the locale files if I remember

What I am suggesting, is reading the plain text locale files and parse
them ourselves without the need for Libc dependency.

I just need to confirm what other Linux and Unix OS's have those files
available?  My suggestion would be no good if only Ubuntu includes
those files, but not other Linux distros or *BSD etc...
