The $KANJI informat removes shift-code data from DBCS data. The $KANJI informat processes host-mainframe data. $KANJI can be used on other platforms. If you use the $KANJI informat on non-EBCDIC (non-modal encoding) hosts, the data does not change.
The data must start with SO and end with SI, unless single-byte blank data are returned. The input data length must be 2 + (SO/SI length)*2.
