Character identifier control
The CHRIDCTL attribute controls the type of coded character set conversion that occurs for display files, printer files and panel groups.
- Add User prompt:
- Not shown
- CL parameter:
The character identifier control information from the user profile is used only if the *CHRIDCTL special value is specified on the CHRID command parameter on the create, change, or override commands for display files, printer files, and panel groups.
|*SYSVAL||The system value QCHRIDCTL is used to determine the character identifier control.|
|*DEVD||The CHRID of the device is used to represent the CCSID of the data. No conversions occur, since the CCSID of the data is always the same as the CHRID of the device.|
|*JOBCCSID||Character conversion occurs when a difference exists between the device CHRID, job CCSID, or data CCSID values. On input, character data is converted from the device CHRID to the job CCSID when it is necessary. On output, character data is converted from the job CCSID to the device CHRID when it is necessary. On output, character data is converted from the file or panel group CCSID to the device CHRID when it is necessary.|
