    Question Transforming ECBDIC to ASCCI code

    Hi everyone
    I am currently developing a process that should handle data from an AS400
    system. However, as the AS400 adapter is not available yet, I am getting
    data from AS400 via ftp (binary) and trying to process locally via a
    C++ program. However I need to transform EBCDIC code which my program reads
    to transform it to ASCCI code so I did not found any other way to perform such a
    transform. I wonder if there is a class or an option of a component
    that allows EBCDIC to ASCII transformation. In case I should write some
    code to build a component that perform such a conversion, I wonder if
    someone could help me with some code sample.

    You need to learn how to use Google:

    bit∙hub [bit-huhb] n. A source and destination for information.

    Which of the six or so (incompatible) versions of EBCDIC do you need? Once you've chosen a codepage, the technique is to create a 256-entry lookup table which, when indexed by EBCDIC code, yields the corresponding ASCII code.

    I don't remember whether EBCDIC <-> ASCII is a 1-to-1 mapping or not. There may be holes or ambiguities.

    EDIT: bithub's response is a good place to start, but again, I have no idea which variant of EBCDIC is used for those tables and it may not be the one you need.
    Code:
    //try
    //{
    	if (a) do { f( b); } while(1);
    	else   do { f(!b); } while(1);
    //}

    Talking Thanks for your attention

    ok fellas

    I ask apologies for interrupting your busy activities to see something trivial like this. I appreciate your valuable help and sorry for my poor English. With I was told it's enough to go on.

    Thanks
