What glitch is this??

Note that my Mac runs in Dutch.

From Terminal I get this:

From AppleScript I get this:

do shell script "date"
--> "Wed Sep 19 12:15:33 CEST 2012"

It would appear that ‘do shell’ is using the en_US locale, not nl_NL.
Can I do do something about that?

This may give you more info on what’s happening:



It is no glitch really, not if you execute scripts with other’s do shell script within them!

I have a snow leopard machine, so I can define environment variables in ~/.MacOsX/Environment.plist. I have set up LC_all to Bm_no to get Norwegian values.

If you are an Lion or later I believe you have to do it in launchd.conf environment.plist - Google
