Perhaps you could open it binary and read it into a buffer

Dcl-s buf varchar(9999999:4) ccsid(13488);

Another thing

Ensure your job is not in “no translation “ mode that is ccsid 65535

Use

Chgjob ccsid(279)

279 is Swedish? Can’t remember…

Hi,



I need to read thru a bunch of IFS-files in an rpg-program to locate some
items.

Using fopen( %trimr( file ): 'r, ccsid=278' ); seems to work pretty well
until I encounter a file with CCSID=13488.

That one gives me an errno=3490=Conversion error.

If I modify the fopen to fopen( %trimr( file ): 'rb' ); binary mode makes
me
get thru the open but then I have to translate all the data by myself.

What is the proper way of dealing with this?



I am expecting to find files in various ccsid's like 819, 37, 819, 278,
13488, 1252 etc.



Highly appreciate any input.

Thanks,



Stefan
