Error description

  • Receiving file contain garbage character.
    Customer set 'LANG=Ja_JP.IBM-939' at USS setting for DBCS code
    conversion.
    Sending DBCS file from Windows side to Unix file on zOS,
    with a 'LF(line feed)' at the end of file.
    It is the problem of dealing with 'LF' on DBCS(using
    0E/0F(shift in/out) environment.
    .
    This looks to be an FTE problem with DBCS EBCDIC. Essentially
    when the end of line character is added we're not correctly
    taking account of the SI/SO state and hence the corruption
    of the data.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • Text transfers to DBCS EBCDIC codepage files may generate
    corrupted output for new line characters. Essentially FTE did
    not account for the shift in shift out state of the DBCS EBCDIC
    data when adding new line characters.  The result is that when
    in the shift out (double byte mode) state a single byte new line
    character (0x15) is inserted, where the sequence should be to
    write a shift in (single byte mode) then the new line character.
    For example: sequence generated by FTE: 0x0E 0x44 0x8A 0x15 0x0F
    (for data from a file containing text of a single double byte
    character followed by a new line) should be: 0x0E 0x44 0x8A 0x0F
    0x15
    
    USERS AFFTECTED:
    Users that perform text transfer to a DBCS EBCDIC codepage file.
    e.g text transfers to a z/OS system with locale Ja_JP (Japan)
    
    PLATFORMS AFFECTED:
    Z/OS
    

Problem conclusion

  • This fixes the problem such that new line characters are
    correctly added for text transfers to DBCS EBCDIC data files.
    

Temporary fix

  • Ifix Available
