Reply with quote

Hi,

I have a situation where we unload data from table (tablespace is UNICODE)
in a flat file using IBM high performance unload in "ASIS" format.

The unloaded file is passed as input to SORT JCL.

Following steps are executed on the unload file.

1. STEP1 - Convert Unicode data to Ebcdic using SORT ALTSEQ.
2. STEP2 - Output of step1 is used to create a output file - This step performs some aggregations/sorting.

I want to know, how can i eliminate STEP1, that is I want to directly process Unicode data.

NOTE: I tried to run the same SORT JCL by eliminating STEP1, i get zero records in output file. So i think SORT only understands EBCDIC data.

Please help.

Not likely, but depending upon what the SORT statements are doing it is entirely possible that you need to convert them from EBCDIC to UNICODE for your sort to work properly.

             097:109,08,X,                   
             106:117,01))                     


This is my sort statement... It works perfectly fine when my input data is in EBCDIC.

I want to know is something can be done to achieve the same results on UNICODE data? It will save our time in conversion step1 - UNICODE -> EBCDIC.

If you show what you have working with ALTSEQ, then the two can be merged.

This is the ALTSEQ STEP1.

UNICODE ¬= ASCII (which seems like what you're doing in your conversion)

And how do you translate multi-character UNICODE characters?

Developed in conjunction with the Universal Character Set standard and published as The Unicode Standard, the latest version of Unicode contains a repertoire of more than 110,000 characters covering 100 scripts and multiple symbol sets.

Subject to Prino's point, you can put together your two separate steps into one. On the INCLUDE you will need to specify the CH field as AQ. The LT X'C1' you'd have to decide what that means on the source data. X'C1' is "A" in EBCDIC, but the order of numbers and letters are different between ASCII and EBCDIC, so, what is that field you are testing, and what does the test tell you?

Yes, that is A - 118,1,BI,LT,X'C1').

Prino, I dont think we have double byte characters in table... tablespace is defined in unicode format.

Yes, but A is in a different position in the ASCII collating sequence than in the EBCDIC one, so if you use an ASCII A or X'C1' you'll get different results from your INCLUDE. So you'd need to work out what value to put there which will give you your desired results, if you want it all in one step.

Oh. And check your SyncSORT documentation. I am assuming in this case that the INCLUDE works with AQ the same way that DFSORT does.

Hi Bill,

I did not understand your point -

What exactly you want me to find out?

Sorry, just realised I'm probably chasing my tail.

If you instead change
Code:

      118,1,BI,LT,X'C1')   


To
Code:

      118,1,AQ,LT,C'A')   


You'll get the correct results (or the expected results from the code, anyway) without having to be concerned about what the X'C1' means in business terms, as the INCLUDE values being tested, for AQ fields, will have the ALTSEQ-translated values.

So, make all the fields in the INCLUDE AQ and you should be OK to merge the two steps into one.

OK, but you're going to have to show some sample input, the output you got, and the output you expect. Post the sysout from the step as well please.

Hi Bill,

Please find the details:

What i know - unicode supports character set > 255. It includes UTF-8 and UTF-16

UTF-8 is single byte character set and UTF-16 is double byte character set.

What I meant was, although our table is defined in unicode, it does not have any other characters which cannot be converted to EBCDIC/ASCII.

UTF-8 is single byte character set and UTF-16 is double byte character set.

You amaze me by being even more clueless than I initially thought.

UTF-8 encodes each of the 1,112,064 valid code points in the Unicode code space (1,114,112 code points minus 2,048 surrogate code points) using one to four 8-bit bytes (a group of 8 bits is known as an octet in the Unicode Standard).

Thanks Prino... I read about it and now have a better understanding about it.

Bill, any idea how to merge these two statements?

Reply with quote

You have situations where you change the collating sequence of XX to YY and then change the collating sequence of YY to ZZ.

This means that an input of XX is treated in the INCLUDE as ZZ.

You can test that this is the case by removing all the changes to what would be EBCDIC numbers (F0-F9), the letter A (C1) and the - (2D).

Your INCLUDE will then "work".

If you genuinely need to change "overlapping" values from one encoding to another I don't think you can do it in one step if you also have the INCLUDE and the SORT. Not with ALTSEQ.

The date you are including on is in ascending order whether in ASCII or in EBCDIC. Without the ALTSEQ you can use a field-type of AC which will automatically convert the literal comparator to ASCII.

That leaves the A. So we're back to "what does that actually mean?".

If you don't know, I'd suggest identifying values with counts for that field, and seeing from the data what you are dealing with. If the A can be represented in the INCLUDE, either as AC or CH, then you can look to using a big FINDREP to do the encoding conversion.

If the amount of data is large doing this would save on passing the file twice. If small, probably not worth putting the two steps together. If in the middle, try both solutions (two steps and one) and see which fits the data better.
