Whenever booting TCL from disk image, I look at the screen output and see "Setting Language to C... Done". What does this mean?

Programs use the  $LANG  variable to determine what external locale file to use for displaying message strings and so on. If  $LANG  contains the value "C" (like the "C" programming language), it will be used whatever is hardcoded into the program.
