       sdeckanji - A character encoding system (codeset) for Japanese

       The  Super  DEC	Kanji codeset extends the DEC Kanji codeset to support
       the CS2 (JIS Katakana) and CS3 (JIS X0212) character sets that are also
       included	 in  the  Japanese EUC codeset. Super DEC Kanji is therefore a
       superset of both DEC Kanji and Japanese EUC and can handle data encoded
       in  either  DEC	Kanji  or Japanese EUC. The codeset was implemented to
       ease the transition from DEC Kanji, which is proprietary	 encoding,  to
       Japanese EUC, which is encoding specified by an industry standard.

       In  addition  to supporting standard Japanese character sets, Super DEC
       Kanji provides three areas for defining User-Defined Characters	(UDC).
       The UDC areas are as follows:

       Area Usage   Row Range	Number of Char‐	  Code Range
       JIS X0208    85-94	940		  F5A1-FEFE
       JIS X0212    78-94	1598		  SS3 [EEA1-FEFE]
       UDC	    1-94	8836		  A121-FE7E

       The representation of ASCII/JIS Roman, JIS X0208 and User-Defined Char‐
       acters  (UDC)  in Super DEC Kanji is the same as that in DEC Kanji. The
       representation of CS2 and CS3 in Super DEC Kanji is the same as that in
       Japanese EUC.

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

	      Converting from and  to  the  DEC	 Kanji	codeset:  deckanji(5).
	      eucJP_sdeckanji, sdeckanji_eucJP

	      Converting  from	and  to Japanese Extended UNIX Code: eucJP(5).
	      ISO-2022-JP_sdeckanji, sdeckanji_ISO-2022JP

	      Converting from and to the ISO  2022-JP  codeset:	 iso2022jp(5).
	      ISO-2022-JPext_sdeckanji, sdeckanji_ISO-2022JPext

	      Converting  from	and  to	 the  ISO  2022-JP  Extended  codeset:
	      iso2022jp(5).   JIS7_sdeckanji  or  jiskanji7_sdeckanji,	sdeck‐
	      anji_JIS7 or sdeckanji_jiskanji7

	      Converting  from	and  to	 7-bit	JIS  Kanji  code: jiskanji(5).
	      SJIS_sdeckanji, sdeckanji_SJIS

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

	      Shift JIS encoding is identical to encoding used in  the	Micro‐
	      soft  Japanese  code page for PC systems. Therefore, you can use
	      these converters to convert Japanese  characters	between	 Super
	      DEC  Kanji  and  PC code-page format. For information on how the
	      operating system	supports  PC  code  pages,  see	 code_page(5).
	      UTF-16_sdeckanji, sdeckanji_UTF-16

	      Converting  from and to UTF-16 format: Unicode(5).  UCS-4_sdeck‐
	      anji, sdeckanji_UCS-4

	      Converting from and to UCS-4 format:  Unicode(5).	  UTF-8_sdeck‐
	      anji, sdeckanji_UTF-8

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

   Font Support for Super DEC Kanji
       For  display  devices,  the operating system supports sdeckanji code by
       converting it to deckanji and using fonts available for deckanji.

       Refer to i18n_printing(5) and Japanese(5) for  information  about  sup‐
       porting print jobs that contain Japanese characters.
