Some encoding programs also placed a character table at the start of the file to help fix problems introduced by ASCII to EBCDIC translations.
The unit also handles startup tests and Fox message transmission in Baudot, EBCD, ASCII and EBCDIC codes with simultaneous parity-error analysis on received data.
Sorting BIG5 or simplified Chinese EBCDIC characters, and translating Johab data to Wansung, "typify the requirements of legacy migration and data warehousing operations in Asia," he added.
The custom software the vendor added to its Tele-Times system software allows the microcomputer to perform the basic call-accounting functions of collecting, pricing and sorting calls, as well as exptracting and preparing the records for further processing, first in a Wang VS100 minicomputer to make the conversion from ASCII to EBCDIC, then into the IBM mainframe for the telecomunications billing system.
Currently the switch is supporting Baudot, ASCII and EBCDIC terminals with asynchronous, bysinc, X.
Report Management converts ASCII or EBCDIC print data streams (sometimes referred to as COLD/ERM reports) into an indexed electronic report format and stores these reports within the document and content management system.
Typically, such converters translate the code from ASCII to EBCDIC and the protocol from asynchronous to bisynchronous or SDLC.
3]Report Management converts ASCII or EBCDIC print data streams (sometimes referred to as COLD/ERM reports) into an indexed electronic format and then stores these reports within the document and content management system with the ability to overlay data on corresponding preformatted forms.
Protocol converters became hot items in 1983 for two reasons: they can reduce the cost of a network by substituting standard asynchronous ASCII terminals, and especially printers, for more-expensive synchronous EBCDIC (extended binary-coded decimal exchange) devices; and their bridging and switching functions allow one communications network to interconnect different types of computers (sync and async) and to serve both with only one terminal per workstation.
