RE[2]: decimal points != commas

In India, we use a 3-2-2 digit grouping as compared to 3-3-3 digit grouping. So we count in lacs and crores and not millions and billions. e.g. 1,000,000 (1 million) is 10,00,000 (10 lacs or also spelled as lakhs) in India.

Though many people in my country are lazy and do not set the appropriate digit grouping and date format in windows. So when I see amounts in millions and dates in mm-dd-yyyy, it annoys the hell out of me.

Can anyone tell me how to set 3-2-2 digit grouping in linux?
