Question:

Are IBM machine codes supported for report processing ?

Answer:

Since the 3.1 release, CA XCOM for UNIX automatically interprets machine code characters in a report. XCOM identifies a report with machine codes by determining that it has been sent from a mainframe machine code dataset, such as FBM, or that the partner has specified that there are IBM machine codes.
Here is a table that lists the codes that are supported and what is inserted in the report for each code. A 0a character represents a line feed and a 0c character is a top of form.
