Known Errors

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

This list is largely historical, since it records all problems that have been reported throughout G&R history. Only the most recently reported problems still exist, unless you are using a very old copy of the product, in which case you should update the product to the most recent version.

E0974: Incorrect print of accented characters

Product: Gspool
Platform: All
Status: Fixed in R6.2. Fix available for R6.1
Last updated: 2004-03-29 12:39:48

GCOS7 has traditionally sent 8bit print data using SS2 encoding.
The choice of the SS2 sequence used in the encoding is decided
by the printer configuration on GCOS7. CSETTYPE 1 gives an SS2
sequence of hex 19 (0x19). CSETTYPE 2 gives an encoding of Esc E
(0x27C5 in EBCDIC 0x1B45 in ASCII). By default GCOS7 sets
CSETTYPE 1 for PRT1220 (DSA code 205C), and CSETTYPE 2 for all
other printers.

Please note that Diane releases V780 and V790 had an error in
this area, that is corrected by ser P9524.02).

By default Gspool interprets both SS2 sequences as SS2 when in
'Semi- transparent' mode. In some cases 0x19 can occur in the
printer data, and must be forwarded to the printer. You must set
-19SS2 OFF to allow this. Sometimes the print includes Esc E as
a printer control sequence. You must set -ESS2 OFF to allow this.

Please note that from update R6.1.1 G&R/Ggate supports 8bit
connections to two new terminals, and a new printer type, making
the use of SS2 redundant, and reducing communications overhead.

DKU9107         8bit DKU terminal
VIP9800         8bit VIP terminal
PRT9220         8bit printer

These new printer types are supported in the GCOS7 Diane models.

There are specific co-requisite patches for GCOS 7 TS 9910 with
the following numbers :

   - Q1606.02
   - Q1607.03
   - Q1608.04
   - Q1609.02

The definition of the 3 new models must also be appended in the
H_TERM subfile of the SYS.HSLLIB library by the customer as
follows :


With these declarations the DKU9107 and VIP9800 can be used instead of the
DKU7107 and HDS7, with no chages in the FORMS library.

A form that was generated for a DKU7107 (subfile : formname_OF_DKU7107
in BINLIB) can be used by a DKU9107.

A form that was generated for a VIP8800 (subfile : formname_OF_HDS7 in
BINLIB) can be used by a VIP9800.
