XTAB table — specify translation table

XTAB is a parameter on JANUS DEFINE, which defines and sets characteristics of a Janus port.

This parameter indicates the EBCDIC-to-ASCII, ASCII-to-EBCDIC, and character entity translation tables to be used for the port.

You can specify a translation table that has not yet been loaded with the JANUS LOADXT command, but the table must be loaded before the port can be started.

The default translation table is STANDARD, which is a fairly generic pair of EBCDIC-to-ASCII and ASCII-to-EBCDIC translate tables.

You can replace a translate table with the JANUS LOADXT command at any time, even if the port has active connections.

The XTAB parameter is valid for all port types.
