Understanding COUNTRY.SYS

COUNTRY.SYS is a file that you can use to display alternative currency, date, and time formats on your system without using other language characters. This file contains all the conventions for the supported countries and national formats. Of course, if you have no need to change the default formats for your version of DOS, you have no need to use COUNTRY.SYS.

When you perform a disk directory command (DIR), the date and time stamps for disk files are displayed in the current national format. In the United States, the system date is normally displayed and stamped on files as MM-DD-YY. You can use alternative methods such as YY-MM-DD (French Canadian) or DD/MM/YY (United Kingdom).
