NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       deckorean  -  A  character  encoding  system (codeset) for

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The DEC Korean (deckorean) codeset consists of the following
 character sets: ASCII KSC 5601-1987

       For  the symbols and ideographic characters defined in the
       KSC 5601-1987 character set, DEC Korean uses  2-byte  data
       representation. For ASCII characters, DEC Korean uses single-byte
 7-bit data representation; that is, the most significant
  bit  (MSB)  of the byte that represents an ASCII
       character value is always set off. For more information on
       the ASCII character set, refer to ascii(5).

   KSC 5601-1987 Characters    [Toc]    [Back]
       KSC  5601-1987  is a national standard that defines a primary
 set of  graphic  characters  for  Korean  information
       interchange.  The  standard defines a character set with a
       total of 8224 characters  that  are  arranged  in  a  code
       table.  The code table has 94 rows, numbered from 1 to 94.
       Each row has 94 columns, also numbered from 1 to 94.  Different
  kinds  of characters occupy different areas of the
       code table as follows:  Special  characters:  986  graphic
       symbols  that  reside  in  rows 1 to 12 Hangul characters:
       2350 Korean (Hangul) characters that reside in rows 16  to
       40  Hanja  characters: 4888 Chinese characters that reside
       in rows 42 to 93

   DEC Korean Encoding Values    [Toc]    [Back]
       To differentiate KSC 5601-1987 codes from ASCII codes, the
       most  significant bit (MSB) of both the first and the second
 byte of a KSC 5601 character value is always set on.

       The value of a KSC 5601 character can be  determined  from
       its row and column number as follows:

       1st byte = A0 + Row number
       2nd byte = A0 + Column number

       For  example,  if  a  character is positioned at the first
       column of the 36th row, its value is CA41, which is  calulated
 as follows:

       1st byte = A0(hex) + 36 = C4 (hex)
       2nd byte = A0(hex) + 01 = A1 (hex)

   Codeset Conversion    [Toc]    [Back]
       The  following  codeset  converter pairs are available for
       converting Korean characters between deckorean  and  other
       encoding  formats.   Refer to iconv_intro(5) for an introduction
 to codeset conversion. For more information  about
       the other codeset for which deckorean is the input or output,
 see the reference page specified in  the  list  item.
       eucKR_deckorean, deckorean_eucKR

              Converting  from  and to Korean Extended UNIX Code:
              eucKR(5).  UTF-16_deckorean, deckorean_UTF-16

              Converting from and to UTF-16  format:  Unicode(5).
              UCS-4_deckorean, deckorean_UCS-4

              Converting  from  and  to UCS-4 format: Unicode(5).
              UTF-8_deckorean, deckorean_UTF-8

              Converting from and to UTF-8 format: Unicode(5).

       There are also codeset converters that convert between the
       Microsoft  Korean code-page format (cp949) used on PC systems
 and UTF-16, UCS-4, and UTF-8 formats.  Note  that  if
       the  UTF-16,  UCS-4, or UTF-8 output from these converters
       is then converted to DEC Korean,  some  Hangul  characters
       may be lost. For more information, see code_page(5).

   DEC Korean Fonts    [Toc]    [Back]
       The operating system provides Korean fonts for both screen
       display and printers.

       The following bitmap fonts are available in various  sizes
       and  typefaces for 75dpi and 100dpi display devices: Fonts

       For  PostScript  printers,  the  operating system provides
       only Munjo fonts.
