tristate "Native language support"
---help---
The base Native Language Support. A number of filesystems
depend on it (e.g. FAT, JOLIET, NT, BEOS filesystems), as well
as the ability of some filesystems to use native languages
(NCP, SMB).
If unsure, say Y.
To compile this code as a module, choose M here: the module
will be called nls_base.
if NLS
config NLS_DEFAULT
string "Default NLS Option"
default "iso8859-1"
---help---
The default NLS used when mounting file system. Note, that this is
the NLS used by your console, not the NLS used by a specific file
system (if different) to store data (filenames) on a disk.
Currently, the valid values are:
big5, cp437, cp737, cp775, cp850, cp852, cp855, cp857, cp860, cp861,
cp862, cp863, cp864, cp865, cp866, cp869, cp874, cp932, cp936,
cp949, cp950, cp1251, cp1255, euc-jp, euc-kr, gb2312, iso8859-1,
iso8859-2, iso8859-3, iso8859-4, iso8859-5, iso8859-6, iso8859-7,
iso8859-8, iso8859-9, iso8859-13, iso8859-14, iso8859-15,
koi8-r, koi8-ru, koi8-u, sjis, tis-620, macroman, utf8.
If you specify a wrong value, it will use the built-in NLS;
compatible with iso8859-1.
If unsure, specify it as "iso8859-1".
