NAME

PCK, pck - map between PCK and character set  

DESCRIPTION

PCK stands for PC Kanji code. It is also known as Shift-JIS (MS kanji) code. This manual page shows map between PCK and character set.

PCK allocates the first byte of each kanji code which corresponds to JIS X0208-1990 and so on to the code other than code range of 0x00-0x7f and 0xa1-0xdf. The following is a map table for PCK and character set.

0x20 JIS X 0201-1976 space character
0x21 - 0x7e JIS X 0201-1976 figure character set for roman character
0x7f JIS X 0201-1976 erase character

The differences from character set of Japanese EUC are,

• Character set of Japanese EUC codeset 3 (JIS X 0212-1990) is not assigned except a part of Vender Defined Character (IBM extension character) (see NOTES).

• Character set which corresponds to Japanese EUC C1 control code is not assigned.
