UNIX or mainframe to Windows character conversion
Posted on 2008-02-07
In a Connect:Direct data transfer between a UNIX and Windows systems, a character conversion table is needed to translate the hexadecimal codes of the two respective systems.
1. what determines what the translation table will be - the codepage of each respective system?
2. can a given translation table be obtained/created, other than by one-by-one analysis of the characters?
Example translate for one character might be: Ò Hex: ED -> D2
Answer to 2 would be to obtain such a listing for all characters.
