CD Unix- CODEPAGE with "iconv -c" or substitution char
When CODEPAGE parameter is used for a transfer, iconv api is used internally by CD to codepage traduction in CDUnix-Linux and CDzOS (CDWindows doesn't use iconv, it's using Microsfot's API mlang.dll).
When in the content of the source file there is a char that exists in source codepage, but it doesn't exist in destination codepage, appears error MBCS002E.
We need that CD can call optionally to "iconv" api with "-c" option to avoid MBCS002E, accepting that we will have characters not translated correctly.
Another option is the use of a substitution char, f.i '?', for this situations, like another products are doing, f.i. like IBM MQ ManagedFileTransfer with option textReplacementCharacterSequence=<char>
What is your industry?
How will this idea be used?
In cases where the content of file needs to be sent, even though one or several chars can't be translated with CODEPAGE pair
