OpenVMS ALPVMSI18N01_073 Alpha V7.3 GB18030 support ECO Summary
TITLE: OpenVMS ALPVMSI18N01_073 Alpha V7.3 GB18030 support ECO Summary

Modification Date:  17-MAY-2002
Modification Date:  Not Applicable
Modification Type:  NEW KIT
NOTE:  An OpenVMS saveset or PCSI installation file is stored
       on the Internet in a self-expanding compressed file.
       For OpenVMS savesets, the name of the compressed saveset
       file will be kit_name.a-dcx_vaxexe for OpenVMS VAX or
       kit_name.a-dcx_axpexe for OpenVMS Alpha. Once the OpenVMS
       saveset is copied to your system, expand the compressed
       saveset by typing RUN kitname.dcx_vaxexe or kitname.dcx_alpexe.
       For PCSI files, once the PCSI file is copied to your system,
       rename the PCSI file to kitname.pcsi-dcx_axpexe or
       kitname.pcsi-dcx_vaxexe, then it can be expanded by typing
       RUN kitname.pcsi-dcx_axpexe or kitname.pcsi-dcx_vaxexe.  The
       resultant file will be the PCSI installation file which can be
       used to install the ECO.

       The following remedial kit(s), or  later, MUST be installed BEFORE

          On OpenVMS V7.2-2 and V7.3, this kit requires a Compaq C Runtime
          kit installed which supports the GB18030 locale.

       In order to receive all the corrections listed in this
       kit, the following remedial kits, or later, should also 
       be installed:



An ECO kit exists for  on OpenVMS Alpha V7.3. This kit addresses 
the following problems:


  o  China passed a new Chinese character set standard,
     GB18030-2000, on March 17, 2000.  GB18030-2000 is based on the
     existing GB2312-1980 character set and the GBK character set
     (a.k.a.  Microsoft Code page 936) extended to 4-byte code
     points.  (Note that GBK is not supported by OpenVMS yet.) That
     is, GB18030-2000 is a superset of the GBK and the GB2312-1980
     character sets.  This standard has more than enough code
     points to adopt all the characters defined in ISO/IEC 10646.
     Essentially, GB18030-2000 covers the same set of characters
     covered by the Unicode Version 3.0 and ISO/IEC 10646-2000

     ALPVMSI18N01_073 brings the GB18030 support to OpenVMS V7.3.
     ALPVMSI18N04_072 brings the GB18030 support to OpenVMS V7.2-2.

     GB18030 components and codeset converters from the current kit
     are aimed at applications based on X/Open internationalization
     model according to which character classification, case
     conversion, and cultural data are retrieved at run-time from
     the current programs locale using the C Run-Time Library

     GB18030 support includes:

        -  zh_CN.GB18030 locale, a Chinese locale for the People's
           Republic of China (uses the GB18030 codeset, which extends
           GBK by means of 4-byte encoding).

        -  UTF8-30 locale, Unicode V3.0.

        -  Codeset converters.  The following codeset converter pairs
           are available for converting Simplified Chinese characters
           between GB18030 and UCS formats.

              .  UCS-2_GB18030, GB18030_UCS-2
                 Converting from and to UCS-2 format

              .  UCS-4_GB18030, GB18030_UCS-4
                 Converting from and to UCS-4 format

              .  UTF-8_GB18030, GB18030_UTF-8
                 Converting from and to UTF-8 format


No reboot is necessary after successful installation of the kit.

SYSTEM account, and typing the following at the DCL prompt:
