to ASCII conversion with deep support for various mainframe sources, formats, and data types
The difference between the ASCII code and the EBCDIC
is illustrated by the following example.
With the exception of IBM mainframes, which use an 8-bit encoding scheme called EBCDIC
(Extended Binary Coded Decimal Interchange Code), ASCII has become the standard for all data communications and computers.
It enables an industry-standard parallel ASCII or EBCDIC
printer to be attached to an IBM System 34, 36, 38 or an AS/400.
Numbers in the EBCDIC
format are often stored in a condensed fashion, referred to as packed.
CyberFusion can transfer text, graphics, binary, and executable files, and automatically performs ACSII to EBCDIC
conversions where necessary.
Fully transparent to the user, the NetCommander 10G includes 19 international character sets and has reliable translation of EBCDIC
Custodians should have an affirmative duty to ensure that all information is functionally available, including accurate record layout of tapes that list the density, blocking, and whether the type is in ASCII, EBCDIC
, or COBOL.
