AT&T’s UNIX V.4 SPEAKS IN TONGUES

By CBR Staff Writer

AT&T Co has added the Multi-National Language Supplement to Unix System V.4, to enable users to communicate with the computer in their native language, and software developers to produce a single application for all markets. It is out for 3B2 computers this month, and Intel systems in the fourth quarter, and includes extended multi-byte support for Unix commands, C multi-byte for character processing, Curses multiple character support and keyboard-character mapping. The announcement, made at last week’s Usenix trade show in Anaheim, California, includes new versions of CountrySpecific Packages to provide localisation features for a particular country or language: the Japanese System Messages will be available for 3B2 computers later this month, while enhancements to the German and French System Messages code are planned. A new European Language Supplement arrives next quarter.
