E1125: Gline, support for 7bit communications

Product: Gline
Platform: All
Status: fixed for 6.4, fix available for 6.3
Last updated: 2006-07-05 10:32:36

Gline is by nature an 8 bit communications channel between the client
and the mainframe application. Some applications, and/or terminals
are by nature 7bit (developed at a time when the top bit in
communication bytes was used as the parity bit and checked/stripped
by the communications software).

This can be controlled in Gline by supplying the parameter -E8 ON/off.

The parameter can be used in any application using Gline, but
normally it would be supplied as a Gline parameter to a CONAME in
dsa.cfg, particularly a CONAME used by clients that were previously
connected by communication lines that used parity.

This parameter was implemented to support Ggate/Telnet 7bit clients.
