The $Ascii function converts an input string, assumed to be EBCDIC, into ASCII, thus performing the reverse process of the $Ebcdic function. For example:

%x = $ascii(%x)

The translation table can be modified when necessary at customer sites. The source code is delivered in the FUNU module.

Not all strings are for display. Question marks are usually the results of trying to print ASCII characters on an EBCDIC machine.
