Information Schema LOCALES Table

MariaDB starting with 10.0.4

The LOCALES table was introduced in MariaDB 10.0.4

Description

The Information Schema LOCALES table contains a list of all compiled-in locales. It is only available if the LOCALES plugin has been installed.

It contains the following columns:

ColumnDescription
IDRow ID.
NAMELocale name, for example en_GB.
DESCRIPTIONLocale description, for example English - United Kingdom.
MAX_MONTH_NAME_LENGTHNumeric length of the longest month in the locale
MAX_DAY_NAME_LENGTHNumeric length of the longest day name in the locale.
DECIMAL_POINTDecimal point character (some locales use a comma).
THOUSAND_SEPThousand's character separator,
ERROR_MESSAGE_LANGUAGEError message language.

The table is not a standard Information Schema table, and is a MariaDB extension.

The SHOW LOCALES statement returns a subset of the information.
