       nlspath - NLSPATH configuration file

       The  file  allows  the  superuser  to  restrict the paths set by others
       through an environment variable to locate message catalogs for or  root

       This file contains only one entry with the following format:

       pseudo-pathnames	 in this file should be absolute pathnames and must be
       separated by a colon.  The paths which are available both in  the  con‐
       figuration  file and environment variable are considered to locate mes‐
       sage catalog files.  The file should not be edited directly.   Instead,
       the  command  should  be used to modify the contents of this file.  See
       chnlspath(1M) for details.

       If contains the file is in compatibility mode.  In this case,  all  and
       root  programs  use the environment variable directly to locate message
       catalogs.  This configuration file is supported only to	provide	 back‐
       ward  compatibility  for	 those or root programs which are depending on
       the environment variable New or root programs should not depend on  the
       environment variable and configuration file

       An entry in this file would typically look like:

       The configuration file must be root owned and there should not be write
       permission set for group and  others.   Superuser  should  not  provide
       write  permission  for  group and others for the paths mentioned in the
       configuration file.

       is provided only for compatibility with existing or  root  applications
       that make use of relative pathnames while invoking catopen(3C).	New or
       root  applications  must	 use   absolute	  pathnames   while   invoking

       This file is to be obsoleted at a future date.
