The $KANJIX format removes shift-code data from DBCS data. The input data length must be 2 + (SO/SI length)*2 . The data must start with SO and end with SI, unless single-byte data is returned.

The $KANJIX format processes host mainframe data, but $KANJIX can be used on other platforms. If you use the $KANJIX format on non-EBCDIC (non-modal encoding) hosts, the data does not change.
