MultiValue Tech Tip!

I just upgraded to a new version of Red Hat Linux, and value marks (CHAR(253)), and I assume other system delimiters, no longer show up on my display. Not only do they not display, they eat the next character.

Well, I finally got my value marks back. After some digging on the net, I tried setting the locale environment variable:

export LC_CTYPE=iso_8859_1

and it worked! ISO 8859 is a standard for 8-bit character encodings.
