DESCRIPTION

In SunOS and JFP, Japanese EUC (Extended UNIX code) is used as character code system expressing multi-byte languages including Japanese character in the "ja" locale. This manual page shows map between Japanese EUC and character set.

The following is a map table for Japanese EUC and character set (SS2 stands for 0x8e, and SS3 stands for 0x8f ).
