LANG_USE num or

LANG_USE kcode



This command sets the language to be used by SMS for its message tables (this includes interpreter messages and error messages). The value of num and kcode can be the same as for the SMS implementation of KBD_TABLE. A description of the message tables and how to link in new message modules is contained in IQLR Volume 5 Issue 1 and Issue 5.


If you set a different language to the version of the Psion programs which you are using, then you may find that the DATE function in Archive and Abacus fails.


LANGUAGE and LANGUAGE$ allow you to find out about the current language. TRA allows you to set the various message tables also. See KBD_TABLE and SET_LANGUAGE.
