(1) An assignment of graphic characters and control function meanings to all code points; for example, assignment of characters and meanings to 256 code points for an 8-bit code, or assignment of characters and meanings to 128 code points for a 7-bit code. (2) A particular assignment of hexadecimal identifiers to graphic characters.
In the context of this documentation, the character encoding of the field data.
IBM] A specification of code points for each graphic character in a set or in a collection of graphic character sets. Within a code page, a code point can have only one specific meaning.
Table that relates the binary character codes used by a program to keys on the keyboard or to the appearance of characters on the monitor. Using code pages is a way to provide support for character sets and keyboard layouts used in different countries. You can configure devices such as the monitor and the keyboard to use a specific code page and to switch from one code page (such as United States) to another (such as Portugal) at the user's request.
A collection of characters that make up a character set.
A table DOS uses to determine which letters, numerals, and symbols are supported by the version of DOS running on the computer. Since DOS versions and computer hardware can vary depending on the country they are being used in, different countries may use different code pages.
A specific set of assignments between characters and internal codes.
A setting which tells Windows which character set to use, and how to retrieve and display date, time, and other information in the format appropriate to a particular country or region. See also Country Settings.
a character set that a computer uses to interpret and display data properly
a character set, which can include numbers, punctuation marks, and other glyphs
a collection of code points for a given character set
a list of selected character codes in a certain order
an internal table that the operating system uses to map symbols (letters, numerals, and punctuation characters) to a character number
a set of mappings between text characters and numbers
a table stored in your computer which defines the particular character set required by a specific national language
a table that associates specific ASCII or EBCDIC values with specific characters
An assignment of hexadecimal identifiers (code points) to graphic characters. Within a given code page, a code point can have only one meaning.
coded character set. Usually refers to the coded character set used by a personal computer; for example, PC code page 437, the default coded character set used by the U.S. English version of the DOS operating system.
an ordered character set with a numerical index (code point) associated with each character; often used as a synonym for coded character set.
A system vendor's implementation of a character set. Often abbreviated as 'CP'. For example, Code page 1252 (or, CP1252) is Microsoftâ€(tm)s implementation (and extension) of the standard character set ISO 8859-1 (also known as Latin-1).
An internal table that the operating system uses to relate the keys on the keyboard to the characters displayed on the screen.
An internal table used by a locale in the context of the internationalization plug-in that the operating system uses to relate keyboard keys to character font screen displays.
Code Page is a Microsoft® term. A code page is a particular mapping of a set of unsigned bytes to a set of visible characters (and space characters). Different code pages are used to represent in memory the characters in different languages. See http://www.microsoft.com/globaldev/reference/WinCP.asp for more details. Also see shape pack
Ordered set of characters in which a numeric index (code point) is associated with each character of a particular writing system. There are separate code pages for different writing systems, such as Western European and Cyrillic.
A means of providing support for character sets and keyboard layouts for different countries or regions. A code page is a table that relates the binary character codes used by a program to keys on the keyboard or to characters on the display.
A set of assignments of characters to code points.
Code page is the traditional IBM term used for a specific character encoding table: a mapping in which a sequence of bits, usually a single octet representing integer values 0 through 255, is associated with a specific character. IBM and Microsoft often allocate a code page number to a character set even if that charset is better known by another name.
