These are the known errors in our products, logged as reported with versions and platforms affected as well as corrections and work-arounds.

E1141: Glink, 'blocks' displayed in DKU/V77 on Chinese PCs

Product: Glink 8.0
Platform: All Windows
Status: Fixed in 8.0.6
Last updated: 2006-11-16 14:42:46

When running Glink in emulation mode VIP7700, or DKU7107/7211 with
field mode attributes (in both of which a visual attribute byte
requires a character position on the screen), and using a Chinese or
other Double Byte Character Set (DBCS), then you may see the start
and end of fields with visual attributes being displayed as
half-block characters 0x1E and 0x1F. If you copy/paste such a screen
area to a suitable editor and view the file in hex, you will see 0x1F
characters, e.g.

  <half block char>MENU<half block char><space>

would be seen in the hex view of an editor as:

  1f 4d 45 4e 55 1f 20

The display and clipboard copy routines have now been fixed to
correctly use the <space> character.

Work-around; if the host isn't in fact sending DBCS characters, then
configure Latin-1 in Settings->Screen->Font->Character set.

Note that the default for the Glink character set is 'AUTO', which
means that Glink will use the same character set as Windows, and so
on a Chinese PC, Glink will normally use the Chinese character set.
Note also that Glink has no problem in using any installed character
set, regardless of the character set being used by Windows. For
maximum choce of character sets in Glink, you must select Windows
fonts in Settings->Screen->Font- >Use Windows font, otherwise Glink
will only offer character sets for which there is a Glink font.
