I know next to NOTHING about "locale" and "codepoints" and widestring usage except what I have learned from Q.10137952 and Q.10158109 (which have been very helpful).

My problem is this:
I have some data from an IBM mainframe - it is SI/SO Double-Byte EBCDIC Japanese Characters (Destined for something called an "ALC Terminal", but thats not important).

I DESPERATELY need to know how to convert this data into something I can display on the PC.  I have the Bitstream Cyberbit font installed, but I'm not getting my expected output. (I do have a GIF of the expected output)

Does anyone have any idea of how to accomplish this, or better yet, has anyone ACTUALLY accomplished this?

Hi,

unfortunately I have nothing directly found you can use but here are some links which may point you to what you need:

- www.unicode.org/unicode/reports/tr16/
- www.unicode.org/unicode/onlinedat/resources.html

Additionally, if I recall correctyl then EBCDIC is an encoding scheme introduce by IBM so you may look at IBM's develper site to get a snippet of Java code to convert EBCDIC into Unicode or MBCS.

I hadn't thought of looking at the Java section - I'll give it a try! Thanx
