Character Set Name

Description

TCHEBCDIC937_3IB

IBM Shift-Out/Shift-In (SO/SI) protocol.

Shift-out (0x0E) and shift-in (0x0F) characters distinguish single-byte characters from double-byte characters. A shift-out, shift-in pair must bracket each string of double-byte characters.

The TCHEBCDIC937_3IB character set includes definitions for the single-byte characters in IBM Code Page (CPGID) 037, an EBCDIC code page.

The value of each byte of a double-byte character is in the range 0x41 through 0xFD, except for the IDEOGRAPHIC SPACE character, which is represented by 0x4040.

The character mapping tables are described in the following text files, which are available on CD and on the Web at http://www.info.teradata.com/.
