38=head1 DESCRIPTION
39
40B<Locale::Constants> defines symbols which are used in
6b6e008c 41the four modules from the Locale-Codes distribution:
47a334e9
JH
42
43 Locale::Language
44 Locale::Country
45 Locale::Currency
6b6e008c 46 Locale::Script
47a334e9 47
6b6e008c
JH
48B<Note:> at the moment only Locale::Country and Locale::Script
49support more than one code set.

51The symbols defined are used to specify which codes you
52want to be used:
53
54 LOCALE_CODE_ALPHA_2
55 LOCALE_CODE_ALPHA_3
56 LOCALE_CODE_NUMERIC
57
58You shouldn't have to C<use> this module directly yourself -
59it is used by the three Locale modules, which in turn export
60the symbols.
61
62=head1 KNOWN BUGS AND LIMITATIONS
