Hi Rhelpers,

  Do we need to install some font packages in R for the locale information to take effect.
Alternatively, i found that we can use the following command for the messages


Should this be done for getting error messages in French? The help for setLocale says that the "LC_MESSAGES" cannot be set for Windows.

Can you please let me know how i can get the error messages in the locale set?
Please do apologize if i am missing something obvious here.
