Convert CLDR text file to binary data for libqdb_cldr.so
mkcldr [options]* input file output file
ARM, PowerPC, SH, x86
The mkcldr utility converts standard CLDR language collation (or sort order) tables into a format usable by the libqdb_cldr.so DLL. Specifically, it reads the contents of a text input file in the CLDR (Common Locale Data Repository) POSIX format and writes this content to an output file as binary data suitable for libqdb_cldr.so.
To use other language collation tables, you can download them from cldr.unicode.org, then use mkcldr to convert them.
If the collation rules in the files shipped with the QNX Neutrino or in the downloaded files do not correspond to the rules required for your locale or implementation, you can adjust them, then use mkcldr to create the files with the binary data format required by libqdb_cldr.so.
The following example converts the file for German used in Switzerland:
$ cd cldr-1.4.1/posix $ mkcldr -c UTF-8.cm de_CH.UTF-8.src /etc/cldr/de_CH
|The UTF-8.cm file is simply a database that maps textual character descriptions to their Unicode value; it is used in parsing the collation information.|
