To use your product's inbuilt translation module for EBCDIC applications, you must use the MFCODESET environment variable to specify the EBCDIC code set you require.
This variable can be set on the command line or within the IDE, and must take the following form:
where nnnn is either a supported 4-digit country code or the code set number as detailed in Supported country codes, or the code set number of a customized translation module.
where xxxx is a 4-character hexadecimal string representing the EBCDIC CCSID, and yyyy is a 4-character hexadecimal string representing the ASCII CCSID. If the specified CCSID translation table is not currently installed, refer to To install a CCSID translation table.
