Re: ASCII support in z/OS
Message ID:
The main problem, obtain new tools to z/OS. tools is  very outdated on USS z/OS.

This will leave the encoding EBCDIC and go to the encoding ISO-8859-1 on USS.
and is able to build newer versions of the tools with minimum work on porting.

If the community perl knows about encoding EBCDIC , the community git does not know about it.

turn on the system ASCII support is much easier than working with the encoding EBCDIC .
