Re: [xml] OS/390 compatibility (EBCDIC)

Trying to compile on OS/390, it should work, right?

I am getting:
$ ../../dep/bin/xmllint --version
../../dep/bin/xmllint: using libxml version 20707
    compiled with: Iconv ISO8859X
So far so good but what about iconv ?
Is it from gnu libc or external (standalone) from libiconv. The second didn't support EBCDIC{xxx}.

$ ../../dep/bin/xmllint sample.xml
sample.xml:1: parser error : encoding not supported EBCDIC
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ebcdic"?>

So if libiconv support EBCDIC then no idea.

Another point is that libxml contain some macros similar to IS_SPACE that check for ASCII codes and this may break something in library. o idea how to find all of them. May be with command like "grep -i space.*32" or "grep -i space.*20" and to look near to lines found for other macros.

sample.xml:1: parser error : Input is not proper UTF-8, indicate encoding !
Bytes: 0xA7 0x94 0x93 0x40
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ebcdic"?>

Can anyone help?

I could not help more.
