Yes, this command assumes a Unix-like system and Bash, which Reinhard uses.
It should work on Windows as well (since setlocale is a standard C
function and is mapped to SetThreadLocale etc. on Windows), but I
think Windows uses different language names (e.g. "English" instead of
"en"), and I don't know an easy way to switch locales from the command
line (it should suffice to call SetThreadLocale on the main console
thread, but how?).
