	Hello 	This is my first posting to this group.  I have read through
some of the postings.
  I realize this territory has been covered at some length here 
and in the FAQs but... 	I am getting the following warnings when running my
perl scripts.
 perl: warning: Setting locale failed. 
perl: warning: Please check that your locale settings:
        LANGUAGE = (unset),
        LC_ALL = "default",
        LANG = (unset)
    are supported and installed on your system.
perl: warning: Falling back to the standard locale ("C").

   I believe I have us_english, iso_1 installed. How can I verify that?
   With LC_ALL set to default why is it not using us_english ,iso_1.   

   Two questions: How do I configure sybperl so it finds the locales? 
   I have set LC_ALL to all 4 potential values with no success.  
   If this can't be fixed how  do I suppress the warning messages? I imagine

   they will hose any cgi's I try to write.
   Below is a copy of my locales.dat file.

        locale = en_US, us_english, iso_1 << added in desperation
        locale = ENGLISH, us_english, iso_1
        locale = default, us_english, iso_1 
        locale = C, us_english, iso_1

   I am running Sybase 11.9.2 with perl5.005_03 and sybperl-2.11  on Red Hat

Thanks in advance
