Re: Parse error ... not well formed token


v6r1 info center (search for "file encoding" and link is for "File.encoding values and System i5 CCSID"
It's not that they are necessarily, different - but 2 entries

UTF8 1208 UTF-8 (IBM CCSID 1208, which is not yet available on the System i5 platform)
UTF-16 1200 Sixteen-bit UCS Transformation Format, byte order identified by an optional byte-order mark
UTF-16BE 1200 Sixteen-bit Unicode Transformation Format, big-endian byte order
UTF-16LE 1200 Sixteen-bit Unicode Transformation Format, little-endian byte order
UTF-8 1208 Eight-bit UCS Transformation Format

Hi Jim,

In my EXPAT_H copy book, I named the constant XML_ENC_UTF8, because you
can't put a dash in an RPG variable name. It's not possible to make a
constant or variable named XML_ENC_UTF-8 in RPG.

But, yes, it means UTF-8 (Which is the official name).

Not sure where in the Information Center it says that "UTF8" and "UTF-8"
mean something different. Can you provide me with a link?

I am still confused by sometimes seeing "UTF-8" and in your code "UTF8"..


In the infocenter (under encoding) it seemed to treat these as different
definitions. Any differences?
