Defining the NLS_LANG as an Environment Variable

Note: If NLS_LANG is not defined, it defaults to AMERICAN_AMERICA.US7ASCII and must be changed to a value that Server uses.
Note: To create or modify this setting for LINUX, define the value of NLS_LANG in the .profile or .cshrc file. Contact your LINUX Admin to learn how to set environment variables.
