I am using code page 037 which shows ebcdic 0x6a
to be broken bar.
x6a is decimal 106.
Whoops, ijust double checked before making a fool of myself.
I was reading transmap.h backwards. 106 maps to 166.
166 is broken bar in 8859-1.
AHA! :-\
I switched to 8859-15 because euro and English pound were
not displaying correctly in 8859-1.
Here's a gotcha.
man iso_8859-15 and dec 166 shows a broken bar but the text says
Latin S with a Caron, which sounds like the char we are seeing.
Aarrggh! Now what?

Well, anyway, thanks.

Hi Phil,

Is there any way to override part of the translation maps
at run time without a rebuild?

Is it that the map in TN5250 is wrong? or is it that you're using the wrong map?

If you're map is supposed to be 273 (for example) and you're using 37,
then you can change to 273 at runtime, like this:

      tn5250 map=273 as400.example.com

Or in tn5250rc:

test {

If you're using the correct map, but TN5250 is translating that particular character incorrectly, then you'll need to fix the map and rebuild it. If that's the case, PLEASE PLEASE let us know what needs to be changed so we can fix the problem.
