LANGUAGE$

Syntax

LANGUAGE$ or

LANGUAGE$ (code)(SMS only)

Location THOR range of computers, SMS

This function returns a string representing the current language layout of the keyboard which is linked into the QL. Unfortunately, the string returned is different on THORs and SMS’s. For a list of the strings returned on THOR computers, see SET_LANGUAGE. Under SMS the string returned is the international car registration code for the language currently loaded (if code is not specified). The second variant returns the car registration code of the language which would be used if the language represented by code was installed using LANG_USE (in which case code can be either the international dialling code or the car registration code).

CROSS-REFERENCE

SET_LANGUAGE allows you to alter the current keyboard. See also LANGUAGE and LANG_USE.
