Most hosts can use only 7-bit characters (hex 00 to 7F). However, many European languages also include 8-bit characters (hex 80 to FF) such as ö or ç that hosts cannot interpret. To ensure that you can use these 8-bit characters on your screen display and still be able to communicate with the host in a way that the host can understand, InfoConnect comes with several European translation tables. Using these tables, you can swap desired 8-bit characters for unused 7-bit characters when you transmit data to the host, and then swap 7-bit characters for 8-bit characters when you receive data from the host.

You can create your own translation tables or use the translation tables installed with InfoConnect. The default translation tables are installed to: <InfoConnect_user_data_folder> This folder location is configurable using the Data Location tab during installation. The default is C:\Users\username\Documents\Micro Focus\InfoConnect. \Translation.

Host to Screen

The name of the translation table file (*.tbl) to use to convert characters received from the host before they are displayed on your desktop.

Typically, you will use the same translation table for both Host To Screen and Screen To Host and select Invert for one or the other (usually Host To Screen).

Screen to Host

The name of the translation table (.TBL file) to use to convert displayed characters before they are sent to the host.


Print range

The portion of the session window to print when you initiate the PrintRange action (which can be mapped to a keystroke, QuickPad, or HotSpot).

SOE to Cursor - All data from the start-of-entry (SOE) character preceding the cursor to the cursor. If there is no SOE, all data from home to the cursor is printed.

Full Page - All data on the page.

Selected - Only the selected data.

Suppress spaces

Remove trailing spaces from the printer output.

Device identifier (DID)

Print (Hex) - The hexadecimal address of the device identifier where the host should send host-initiated print jobs.

Read (Hex) - The hexadecimal address of the device identifier that will receive data from a device such as a host's disk drive or tape system.
