problem with "setlocale"

Hi Everybody

Why the following script return NULL?

this is the following:
<?php

var_dump ( setlocale(LC_ALL, "pl") );

?>

this is the return:

bool(false)

I use:
1. apache2
2. Ubuntu 6.06 LTS - Dapper Drake

When I execute 'locale' in my terminal I return the following
messages:

rob$ locale
LANG=pl_PL.UTF-8
LANGUAGE=pl_PL:pl:en_GB:en
LC_CTYPE="pl_PL.UTF-8"
LC_NUMERIC="pl_PL.UTF-8"
LC_TIME="pl_PL.UTF-8"
LC_COLLATE="pl_PL.UTF-8"
LC_MONETARY="pl_PL.UTF-8"
LC_MESSAGES="pl_PL.UTF-8"
LC_PAPER="pl_PL.UTF-8"
LC_NAME="pl_PL.UTF-8"
LC_ADDRESS="pl_PL.UTF-8"
LC_TELEPHONE="pl_PL.UTF-8"
LC_MEASUREMENT="pl_PL.UTF-8"
LC_IDENTIFICATION="pl_PL.UTF-8"
LC_ALL=

rob$locale -a | grep PL
pl_PL.utf8

Any suggestion or comments is greatly appreciated.
Robert.

You're trying to set the locale to "pl" which doesn't exist on your
system (as you've shown us). Try setting it to "pl_PL.utf8" instead.

Try using 'pl_PL.utf8' as the locale id.
