Subject: PMP> Localization changes to Printer MIB
Mime-Version: 1.0

Status: R

Ira McDonald on 4/16/97 raised on issue that the localization
specified in the Printer MIB is not adequate for the Japan/Asia/
Far East markets. Ira has developed the following proposal and
Chris and I think we should include it in the Printer MIB.
Any discussion?
--------------------------------------------------

Add three new textual conventions:
----------------------------------

PrtCurrentLocaleDisplayString ::= TEXTUAL-CONVENTION
STATUS current
DESCRIPTION
"The type for human-readable (NOT binary) string objects:
a) whose dynamic locale (language, country, code set) shall be
indicated by the value of 'prtGeneralCurrentLocalization';
b) whose value (when updated by an SNMP Set-Request) shall be
interpreted in this locale by the management agent;
c) whose value (when returned by an SNMP Get-Response) shall be
interpreted in this locale by the management station."
REFERENCE
"See: 'prtGeneralCurrentLocalization' in the General group
of this Printer MIB."
SYNTAX OCTET STRING

PrtConsoleLocaleDisplayString ::= TEXTUAL-CONVENTION
STATUS current
DESCRIPTION
"The type for human-readable (NOT binary) string objects:
a) whose dynamic locale (language, country, code set) shall be
indicated by the value of 'prtGeneralConsoleLocalization';
b) whose value (when updated by an SNMP Set-Request) shall be
interpreted in this locale by the management agent;
c) whose value (when returned by an SNMP Get-Response) shall be
interpreted in this locale by the management station."
REFERENCE
"See: 'prtGeneralConsoleLocalization' in the General group
of this Printer MIB."
SYNTAX OCTET STRING

PrtStaticLocaleDisplayString ::= TEXTUAL-CONVENTION
STATUS current
DESCRIPTION
"The type for human-readable (NOT binary) string objects:
a) whose static locale (language, country, code set) shall be
indicated by the value of 'prtGeneralStaticLocalization';
b) whose value (when updated by an SNMP Set-Request) shall be
interpreted in this locale by the management agent;
c) whose value (when returned by an SNMP Get-Response) shall be
interpreted in this locale by the management station."
REFERENCE
"See: 'prtGeneralStaticLocalization' in the General group
of this Printer MIB."

or 'PrtStaticLocaleDisplayString' type.

Usage: This object may be updated (repeatedly) during normal
