KANJI1 character data is usually a mixture of single- and multibyte characters. Therefore, even when a session uses a non-Japanese client character set, such as standard EBCDIC or ASCII, certain character configurations are interpreted either as starting a multibyte character string or as control characters.
The following interpretations apply to name and data characters for all client character sets when the server character set is KANJI1.
|Characters with a client encoding of …||Are …|
|interpreted as the Shift-Out or Shift-In character respectively, which delimit the start or end of a multibyte character string.|
