Hi Scott,

Sorry, the "c" was a typo. I sent the emails to **@scottklement.com.

I do not know, why I cannot reply to your posting at code400.com. There is no "Reply" button for me. Therefore I reply here and I am going to send you a private email with some logs and "EXAMPLE12B" to demonstrate problem #2.

Problem #2:

When the remote and local POST ccsids are equal, then the 'BinaryData' switch is set to *on in HTTP_SetCCSIDs(). Then webform_setVar() aka http_url_encoder_addvar_long_s() calls http_url_encoder_addvar_long(), which calls http_xlatedyn(), which calls BinaryCopy() instead of CCSIDXLateDyn() (because of BinaryData=*on) and hence the query parameter is not converted into the CCSID of the protocol data. It remains unchanged EBCDIC data. That looks like this in the debug log:

There are 0 cookies in the cache
GET http://api.wunderground.com/auto/wui/geo/ForecastXML/index.xml?%98%A4%85%99%A8=%C3%88%89%83%81%87%96 HTTP/1.1
Host: api.wunderground.com
User-Agent: http-api/1.39

Actually it should look like that:

There are 0 cookies in the cache
GET http://api.wunderground.com/auto/wui/geo/ForecastXML/index.xml?query=Chicago HTTP/1.1
Host: api.wunderground.com
User-Agent: http-api/1.39

From my point of view the actual problem is, that http_url_encoder_addvar_long() calls http_xlatedyn(). But http_xlatedyn() calls CCSIDXLateDyn(), which uses the pToAscii and pToEbcdic iconv() handles. But these handles are intended to be used for converting POST data and _not_ protocol data. The URL is protocol data and not POST data, isn't it? Or am I missing something?

Hi Scott,

I tried to send email to your email address (**@scottclement.com) at the end of November (27.11.2018) and start of December (07.12.2018) but got no reply. The subject of the emails was "Problem with ccsid of response file when using http_req()" and "Problems with mailing list and HTTPAPI".

I just posted the problems at code400.com, because I did not see your posting here fast enough. I should have read all new posting before doing that.
