Country

Index

Enables MS-DOS to use country-specific conventions for displaying times, dates, and currency; for determining the order by which characters are sorted; and for determining which characters can be used in filenames.

The COUNTRY command can only be invoked from Config.sys and requires the presence of a configuration file containing the country information.

Syntax:

COUNTRY=xxx[,yyy][,filename]

xxxThe country code.
yyyA character set applicable to the country specified by xxx.
filenameThe file containing country information. filename should be specified unless it is Country.sys and in the root directory.

Notes:

Examples:

To use French conventions for international currency, time, date and alphanumeric sorting order:
COUNTRY=033

To specify the appropriate character set for the French country code:
COUNTRY=033,850

If Country.sys is kept in the 'c:\windows\command' directory:
COUNTRY=033,,c:\windows\command\country.sys
