• Subject: Modify EBCDIC>ASCII xlate table

I've created a remote out queue to use an IP-addressable (ASCII) label printer
on our network.  The printer requires an ASCII hex code '02' as a prefix to
several "system-level" commands.

Our experience with this type of label printer thus far has been to attach it
to a 5250 dumb terminal via the serial port.  The IDEA display station allows
custom translation and it is here that we translate an '@' character (EBCDIC
x'7C') to an ASCII x'02' character.

Back to the new printer:  We are trying to stay away from dumb terminals now
and attempting to avoid associated costs with a dumb terminal and 5250 remote
controller in this situation.

When I create the out queue (CRTOUTQ), I have several options, but I believe
the way I need to go with this is to:

  Connection type  . . . . . . .  *IP        *SNA, *IP
  Destination type . . . . . . .  *OTHER     *OS400, *OS400V2,
  Transform SCS to ASCII . . . .  *YES       *YES, *NO
  Manufacturer type and model  .  *WSCST
  Workstation customizing object  ?????????? Name, *NONE

Is a workstation customizing object the way to go here?  Is there an existing
EBCDIC-to-ASCII *WSCST object that I can copy to a new one and modify the one
byte?

TIA,
