[FCHARSET = {None / CFT_EBCDIC-FR / CFT_ UTF-8 / UTF-16BE / UTF-16LE / CFT_ISO8859-1 / ASCII / EBCDIC / UTF-8 / ISO8859-1 / . . . }]

The fcharset parameter defines the local file encoding.

  • On the sender side, fcharset is used to read a file. You then use the ncharset to encode this into network data when sending a file.
  • On the receiver side, fcharset is the local file encoding used to write a file that has this type of encoding. The ncharset is used to decode network data when receiving a file.

Example 1

To translate a local text file before sending it, for example from UTF-8 to UTF-16, using Transfer CFT mapping:

CFTUTIL SEND PART = NEWYORK,

IDF = TEST_UTF-8,

FCHARSET = CFT_UTF-8,

NCHARSET = CFT_UTF-16,

FTYPE = T

Example 2

To translate a local text file before sending it, for example from UTF-8 to UTF-16:

CFTUTIL SEND PART = NEWYORK,

IDF = TEST_UTF-8_2,

FCHARSET = UTF-8,

NCHARSET = UTF-16,

FTYPE = T

To translate a local text file before sending it, for example from UTF-8 to UCS-2:
