    Any line starting with a hash tag is interpreted as a comment. This will give you what you are after:
    Code:
    echo $LANG
    In working with *nix...There be dragons. Newcomers: I recommend reading Linux is Not Windows (http://linux.oneandoneis2.org/LNW.htm) and The Linux Command Line (http://www.linuxcommand.org/tlcl.php) before beginning your quest for a better OS.
