Question:

How does the Thai codepage 838 get implemented in CA View?

 

Answer:

The Thai codepage 838, though not one of the standard View codepages, can be implemented by:

. The table is to be 256 bytes long and contains the translation for each value x'00'-x'FF'. 

  Each unused table position should be set to x'4B' (a period character). 

 

. SARINIT CODEPAGE=... can be set by sites using other than standard English characters that may be unprintable, undisplayable and/or resulting from special PC keyboard keys. 

 

. The translate table should be link-edited with the following attributes: 

. . AMODE(31) RMODE(ANY) RENT REUS AC(1) 

 

. The table should be stored as a new View EBC load module starting with ExxCP___ followed by a 1-3 character ID.

  This ID would then be specified in the SARINIT CODEPAGE= value (for example, for View 12.2, EC2CP838 would correspond to CODEPAGE=838).
