I have a pck encoded file.
When I use the auto_ef -l 3 file.txt,  get PCK on staging box. But when I use the same file on alpha box I get  " No corresponding encoding found.."
Please advise what is missing.

Hi,

auto_ef uses iconv internally to decide which encoding scheme there is,

Could it be that the japanese locale is not (or not fully) installed on the "alpha box"?

Here's the localeadm config file. Please check for missing packages.

I think you need this: ja_JP.PCK

Is it there?

Check with localeadm.
If something is missing use again localeadm to add it.

Here is the manpage: http://docs.sun.com/app/docs/doc/816-5166/localeadm-1m?a=view
