       eucJP - A character encoding system (codeset) for Japanese

       The  Japanese  EUC  (Extended UNIX Code), or eucJP, codeset consists of
       the following character sets: CS0 (ASCII or JIS Roman) CS1 (JIS	X0208)
       CS2 (JIS Katakana) CS3 (JIS X0212)

       CS0  is	a  primary  character set. CS1, CS2, and CS3 are supplementary
       character sets. The MSB (Most Significant Bit) of the byte that	repre‐
       sents  a character in CS0 is set off, whereas the MSB of the bytes that
       represent characters in CS1, CS2, and CS3 is set on.

   Japanese EUC Encoding
       The representation of ASCII/JIS Roman and JIS X0208 characters  in  the
       Japanese EUC codeset is similar to how those characters are represented
       in the DEC Kanji codeset (refer to  deckanji(5)).  The  two  additional
       character sets, JIS Katakana and JIS X0212, are encoded in the Japanese
       EUC codeset by making use of the SS2 (Single Shift 2) and  SS3  (Single
       Shift 3) control characters.

       The Japanese EUC codeset provides the following two areas for represen‐
       tation of user-defined characters (UDC):

       Area Usage   Row Range	Number of Char‐	  Code Range
       JIS X0208    85-94	940		  F5A1-FEFE
       JIS X0212    78-94	1598		  SS3 [EEA1-FEFE]

       The  representation  of	UDCs  on these two code planes is identical to
       that for standard characters that occupy the same planes.  Code	ranges
       distinguish  between  UDCs and standard JIS X0208 and JIS X0212 charac‐
       ters that occupy the same plane.

       Currently, the operating system does not support JIS X0212 (JIS Supple‐
       mentary) characters.

   Codeset Conversion
       The  following codeset converter pairs are available for converting Ja‐
       panese characters between eucJP and other encoding formats.   Refer  to
       iconv_intro(5)  for  an	introduction  to  codeset conversion. For more
       information about the other codeset for which eucJP  is	the  input  or
       output,	see  the  reference  page  specified  in the list item.	 deck‐
       anji_eucJP, eucJP_deckanji

	      Converting from and  to  the  DEC	 Kanji	codeset:  deckanji(5).
	      ISO-2022-JP_eucJP, eucJP_ISO-2022-JP

	      Converting   from	  and	to  the	 ISO  2022  Japanese  codeset:
	      iso2022jp(5).  ISO-2022-JPext_eucJP, eucJP_ISO-2022-JPext

	      Converting from and to the ISO 2022 Japanese  Extended  codeset:
	      iso2022jp(5).  JIS7_eucJP, eucJP_JIS7

	      Converting   from	  and	to   the  JIS7	codeset:  jiskanji(5).
	      SJIS_eucJP, eucJP_SJIS

	      Converting from and to the Shift JIS codeset: SJIS(5).

	      Shift JIS encoding is identical to the encoding used in the  Mi‐
	      crosoft  PC  code page for Japanese. You can therefore use these
	      converters to convert Japanese text from and to  Japanese	 code-
	      page format. See code_page(5) for more information about how the
	      operating	 system	 supports  PC  code  pages.   sdeckanji_eucJP,

	      Converting  from	and  to	 the  Super  DEC Kanji codeset: sdeck‐
	      anji(5).	UTF-16_eucJP, eucJP_UTF-16

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

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

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

   Japanese EUC Fonts
       For display devices, the operating system supports Japanese EUC charac‐
       ters  by	 converting Japanese EUC code to DEC Kanji code and then using
       the fonts for DEC Kanji. Because the CS3 character set is not supported
       by the DEC Kanji codeset, CS3 characters cannot be displayed.

       The  operating  system  does  not provide PostScript fonts for Japanese
       EUC. Some printers support Japanese  with  printer-resident  fonts  and
       print filters perform codeset conversion, if required, for the encoding
       used in the file input to the print job. For some other	printers,  you
       can  set	 up  a	print filter to convert Japanese bitmap fonts to Post‐
       Script. Refer to i18n_printing(5) for  introductory  information	 about
       your printing options.
