lp5250d code table translation issue

Hello All-

Been struggling with trying to get Latvian/Lithuanian language support 
running. On the AS/400 we use cp1112, which properly represents all of the 
nice characters we need. On the output side, we have some ibm6400 printer 
beasts ready to support cp921, which also has all the characters we need. 
so far so good.

The problem is actually doing the cp translation.

I understand that transmaps.h is the conversion table used by lp5250d. I 
have created two tables one a 1112-921 conversion, and a second 921-1112 
conversion. I have also added two lines at the index at the end "921" and 
"1112" with appropriate references. I have recompiled the tn5250 package 
and installed. I then ammended the tn5250rc to include the map=1112 
statement for my printer. When I run the lp5250d eotest, it connects and 
immediately dumps. When I review the trace file, it appears that something 
is forcing things back to cp37... and dumping the connection.

Anybody have an idea what is going on?

Re: lp5250d code table translation issue

Hi Elmars,

If you want to perform the code page translation within lp5250d, you need to specify that IBMTRANSFORM is
NO. Otherwise, you can attach the code page translation logic to a WSCST and then call for that WSCST when
you start lp5250d. It is mostly a matter of where you want to expend the processing resources to perform the
conversion, on your IBM host or on the server running lp5250d.

HTH

Best Regards,

/Paul

Copy and paste in x5250 works like every X11 application: you select the 
text you want to copy with the left mouse button and paste it with the 
middle mouse button.  If you only have two mouse buttons then click both 
buttons at the same time.

There is no method using the keyboard only.

New folder hierarchy

Hi

I finally updated the A5250 project to build with the new directory 
hierarchy. Still not tested, since I changed job, I don't have access to 
a server.

The win32 build is still not working though, I guess Scott will have to 
fix it since my knowledge of Unix-like config tools are non-existent. I 
could make a VC7.1 project but I guess that's not the preferred way of 
building it.

Okay, I've fixed the Win32 build.  I've just committed the changes to CVS.

Terminal window too tiny

I am running on Ubuntu breezy, a debian based distro and I installed via
apt-get which reports version 0.16.5-12.  

Font support warning message:

xt5250 host
Warning: Missing charsets in String to FontSet conversion
Warning: Unable to load any usable fontset

By default, LANG on my box is 
LANG=en_US.UTF-8

According to google, I can:
LANG=C xt5250 host

And the warnings disappear, but I am unclear on if that is the correct
behavior, or what the ramifications of doing so are.  What exactly is
the actual cause of the warning message and solution?

The real issue that I'm trying to solve is that the terminal window is
very tiny and unreadable.  To partially remedy, I hit control-right
click and select 'huge', but it's still not large enough for my taste,
though it is usable.

Advice appreciated.

Thank you.

Regards,
Rich

xt5250 just uses xterm (falling back to rxvt, then x-terminal-emulator
on Debian), so it should work as long as xterm works.  Does starting up
an xterm work in a UTF-8 locale?

Everything (basically) works.

However, warnings are issued relating to fonts when LANG=en_US.UTF-8,
which may or may not be relevant to my problem.

Results do appear to be visibly identical (other than the warnings)
regardless of which of the two LANG settings are selected.

The terminal window is too small in both cases.  Unreadable at the
default size and barely acceptable at the 'huge' setting.

How does tn5250 select it's fonts?  Are there some controllable settings
somewhere?

Thanks.

Rich

man tn5250rc

Not that I ever found a font I really liked, but I didn't put much 
effort into it.  I got used to having my screens sized so that I could 
see four at a time.
