I'm not sure if by 'terminal session' you mean the terminal device or the terminal job. For the device you could use Retrieve Device Description (QDCRDEVD) API, for the job Retrieve Job Information (QUSRJOBI). If working with the device description you should be careful about the job/*dspf/*pnlgrp parameters associated with CHRID and CHRIDCTL as implicit conversions may be taking place on your behalf. For Unicode/EBCDIC conversion you could use APIs such as QTQCVRT or the MI instruction XLATEMB. There are various encodings for Unicode (UCS-2, UTF-16, UTF-8, etc.) and each can represent a given character in different ways. All three of these are supported by the API and MI interfaces.

Also, I recall reading that there are 2 different Unicode codepages; are there any differences between how they code the characters representable in EBCDIC? -- JHHL _______________________________________________ This is the MI Programming on the AS400 / iSeries (MI400) mailing list To post a message email: MI400@xxxxxxxxxxxx To subscribe, unsubscribe, or change list options, visit: http://lists.midrange.com/mailman/listinfo/mi400 or email: MI400-request@xxxxxxxxxxxx Before posting, please take a moment to review the archives at http://archive.midrange.com/mi400.
