Linuxhelp _ Technical Support _ Short Date Format for a User (not global)

Posted by: sumitlinuxzero Jul 23 2008, 11:33 PM

Hey Folks,
I am running into a situation where I need to set the date format for a user to the mm/dd/yyyy format instead of the default POSIX format. In solaris I could just change the LC_TIME to the needed code and that would do the trick for me. Do any of you know how to do this in Linux? I only need the date format to change for a user not as a global setting.

Thanks for your help.
