ENCODING optionally identifies the encoding scheme for the character set. If omitted, the character set must contain a standard suffix that indicates the encoding. If such a suffix exists, then the encoding cannot be overridden using this operand. The following character sets are available in CLIv2.
|EBCDIC||Extended Binary-Coded-Decimal Interchange Code||
|ASCII||American Standard Code for Information Interchange||
|BIGFIVE||Big Five Plus||
|EUC-CN||Extended Unix Code - China||
|EUC-JP||Extended Unix Code - Japan||
|EUC-KR||Extended Unix Code - Korea||
|SJIS||Shift-JIS (Japanese Industrial Standard)||
|UHC||Unified Hangul Code||
|UTF8||UCS (Universal Character Set) Transformation Format 8-bit||
Most four-byte codepoints (X'F0' through X'F4') are not supported by the database.
|UTF16||UCS (Universal Character Set) Transformation Format- 16-bit||
Surrogates (four-byte codepoints that begin or end with the two-byte codepoints X'D800' through X'DBFF') are not supported by the database.
While all codepoints are reflected to and from the database, for character sets that allow mixtures of single and multi-byte characters, only the single-byte characters are meaningful to CLIv2.
