Each statement contains a directive or is associated with a directive. A directive identifies the purpose of the statement. The following directives are supported:

Directive Description
CHAR Ignored by CLIv2, allowing the same file to be used by both CLIv2 and TDP.
CHARSET Explicitly begins a definition and identifies the encoding scheme.
END Ends processing of records in the file.
MONOCASE Ignored by CLIv2, allowing the same file to be used by both CLIv2 and TDP.
NUMERICS Defines the numeric characters.
SANITIZE Ignored by CLIv2, allowing the same file to be used by both CLIv2 and TDP.
UNICODE Defines single-byte codepoints in the character set.

A file describes one or more character sets. Each description begins with a CHARSET directive and ends with the next CHARSET directive, the END directive, or the last record in the file. The CHAR, MONOCASE, NUMERICS, SANITIZE, and UNICODE directives may appear in any order within a description.

The following sections provide information and syntax diagrams for each directive. Refer to How to Read Syntax Diagrams for additional information on syntax diagrams.
