    your system. An exact match is not important, provided that the

Problem conclusion

  • The product documentation in the IBM Knowledge Center for topic
    "Generating a new code page converter" (ac30170_) will be
    modified as follows:
    
    1. The new url link for the 'character set mappings files' is:
    http://site.icu-project.org/charts/charset
    
    3. Go to http://site.icu-project.org/download, download the
    source code and build binaries for your system. If you have
    problems building the converter, see the
    https://unicode-org.github.io/icu/userguide/
