Good Day!

Hello everyone. Need your help and support . We have a project initiative to create an instance for Vietnam Country. Business is suggesting to use Vietnamese characters. Would this be possible to code Vietnamese char using PL1? If possible, how can we code it?

Yes, and no: from the manual:

Quote:
Widechar data
WIDECHAR data can contain any UTF-16 character. Each widechar occupies 2
bytes of storage.
There is currently no support yet for

  • WIDECHAR characters in source files
  • W string constants
  • use of WIDECHAR expressions in stream I/O
  • implicit conversion to/from WIDECHAR in record I/O
  • implicit endianness flags in record I/O

If you create a WIDECHAR file, you should write the endianness flag ('fe_ff'wx) as the first two bytes of the file.
