Thank you for answering!

Our software Domino 5.2 runs on Linux suse 7.2.
We are in Germany and are using the comma to separate
decimal values in numbers. This causes a problem when we run an agent in domino because the Lotus script format function on Domino expects a dot to separate numeric values.
On the Linux side we tried the LC_ALL and en_US commands to convert the numeric display but it does not work.

So how do we tell Linux to accept the comma as a decimal value
separator? Or how do we convert the comma to a dot in Linux?
Without changing the whole local settings to US?

Thank you in advance
