        Description

        Following exception was displayed when I executed jshell command by using standard user on AIX with Japanese locale.

        ================================

        According to my investigation, JLine library checks word "columns" in "stty -a" command output.
        The word "columns" was translated on AIX's Japanese locale (other locales also), so above error was happened.

        OpenJDK for AIX developer could not find this issue because he/she requires AIX Toolbox's coreutils rpm package as build tools.
        Another stty command is in /opt/freeware/bin/stty, it's in coreutils rpm package.

        Standard users' system may not have coreutils rpm package or they may not set /opt/freeware/bin in PATH environment variable.
        stty command should be executed with C locale to get English message.
        Additionally, JLine library requires -F option. AIX's stty command does not support -F option,
        but stty command which is in coreutils rpm package supports -F option.
        On standard jshell usage, -F option may not be used. But when the system has coreutils rpm package, jshell should use this one.
