There is an .ini file that you can put in the windows directory that
will cause CA95 to translate CCSID 65535 data. Sorry, I don't remember
the particulars. The default is no translation. It is documented in a
LOT of places. Check the readme in CA95, ptf instructions, or the CA web
site. You could probably change the CCSID of the file to your national
language code page to achieve the same thing. I don't know if the .ini
file handles national languages other than US English. I've got my PC
set up with the .ini file at work, so I'll try to make note of it
tomorrow. Let me know if you don't find the info.
