$KANJIXw. Informat

Adds shift-code data to DBCS data.
Category: DBCS



Syntax Description

specifies the width of the input field.
Range:The minimum width for the informat is 2 + (length of shift code used on the current DBCSTYPE= setting)*2.
Restriction:The width must be an even number. If it is an odd number, it is truncated. The width must be equal to or greater than the length of the shift-code data.


The $KANJIX informat adds shift-code data to DBCS data that does not have shift-code data. If the input data is blank, shift-code data is not added. The $KANJIX informat processes host-mainframe data, but $KANJIX can be used on other platforms. If you use the $KANJIX informat on non-EBCDIC (non-modal encoding) hosts, the data does not change.
