Issues change to locale Portguese_Brasil.1252

Hi,

Is possible change default COLLATE/CTYPE  to Portugese_Brazil.1252 ?  I am using Centos6 with Postgres 9.1 in this installation of Postgres has only these locales installed.
 
pt_BR
pt_BR.iso88591
pt_BR.utf8
pt_PT
pt_PT@euro
pt_PT.iso88591
pt_PT.iso885915@euro
pt_PT.utf8

Are there some diference between  Portuguese_Brazil.1252 with others existent  locales

Thanks.

*1252 is a windows character set, usually, hence it's not recommended as default on *nix systems (which use international standards, usually:)

You need to do this when the database is created.

initdb --encoding=WIN1512 --locale=pt_BR

you can define COLLATE as part of table definition or query.

Hi Earthman2

I create again cluster using your parameters , show this message pgstartup

The files belonging to this database system will be owned by user "postgres".
This user must also own the server process.

The database cluster will be initialized with locale en_US.UTF-8.
The default database encoding has accordingly been set to UTF8.
The default text search configuration will be set to "english".

fixing permissions on existing directory /var/lib/pgsql/9.0/data ... ok
creating subdirectories ... ok
selecting default max_connections ... 100
selecting default shared_buffers ... 32MB
creating configuration files ... ok
creating template1 database in /var/lib/pgsql/9.0/data/base/1 ... ok

Success. You can now start the database server using:

    /usr/pgsql-9.0/bin/postgres -D /var/lib/pgsql/9.0/data
or
    /usr/pgsql-9.0/bin/pg_ctl -D /var/lib/pgsql/9.0/data -l logfile start


I see that the idioms still EN_US not change to pt_BR , why ?

Hi Earthman2

I solve the issue using creating table using follow command

createdb  -E SQL_ASCII -T template0 --lc-collate=pt_BR --lc-ctype=pt_BR bd_Teste

bd_test | postgres | SQL_ASCII | pt_BR       | pt_BR          |


Thank very much
