6.6: Help for International Language Support

You can use the command C-h L (describe-language-environment) to find out the support for a specific language environment. See Language Environments. This tells you which languages this language environment is useful for, and lists the character sets, coding systems, and input methods that go with it. It also shows some sample text to illustrate scripts.

The command C-h h (view-hello-file) displays the file `etc/HELLO', which shows how to say ``hello'' in many languages.

The command C-h I (describe-input-method) describes information about input methods---either a specified input method, or by default the input method in use. See Input Methods.

The command C-h C (describe-coding-system) describes information about coding systems---either a specified coding system, or the ones currently in use. See Coding Systems.
