The CHAR directive defines the syntactic characters of importance to TDP.

Syntax



Usage Notes

The length of each value is determined by the encoding scheme for the character set. For the characters of interest to TDP, the length is always two except for UTF16 encoding, for which the length is four. The CHAR directive can be specified more than once for each character set.

If the same character is defined more than once for a character set (either on a single CHAR directive, on multiple CHAR directives, or on a CHAR and a UNICODE directive), the last value is used. All four characters must be defined to form a complete character set description.

If no CHARSET directive precedes CHAR, then a character set description is implicitly begun -- in effect, a CHARSET directive with no operands is assumed.

Example: CHAR

Define the relevant syntactic characters for IBM Code Page 833.
