Hi,

The GNU C library documentation mentions this "locale" program that I'd like to use (https://ftp.gnu.org/old-gnu/Manuals/glibc-2.2.3/html_chapter/libc_toc.html#TOC112), but I can't seem to find the package [output] that provides it...

Hi,

There's a "locale" program in the glibc package.

I think the gcc-toolchain package also includes links to these programs.
So installing glibc or gcc-toolchain should make the "locale" program
available.

Thanks, Guillaume, I went with gcc-toolchain, and it works now.

I didn't tried glibc because I use Guix System and, from the description of the package, I assumed it should be already installed.

It's "installed" in the sense that it's used by almost every package, but it's not explicitely part of your profile. Dependencies are installed to the store, but not explicitely accessible unless you install them to your profile.

I hope it makes sense, and glad you found a solution!
