Converts ASCII stream data to EBCDIC stream data.

The apka2e input-record exit program translates data that is encoded in one code character set (CCSID) to another. You should use this exit when your job uses fonts such as GT12, which has code points that are different from your data file. The default translation is from ASCII (code set 00850) to EBCDIC (code set 00037) if the INPCCSID and OUTCCSID parameters are not specified on the line2afp command. INPCCSID specifies the input code page, and OUTCCSID specifies the output code page.

To execute the apka2e input record exit program, set these keywords and values in your line-data transform keyword file. The line2afp parmdd keyword identifies the keyword file.
