Reading and writing unicode characters

Reading and writing unicode characters

The Secure Agent reads and writes Unicode data using the UTF-8 code page. The Secure Agent requires that the code page environment variable be set to UTF-8.
Before you run a task to read or write unicode characters, you must set the environmental variable on the machine that runs the Secure Agent.
  1. Perform the following tasks based on the Windows or Linux 64 machine where you installed the Secure Agent:
    • For Windows, create an environmental variable INFA_CODEPAGENAME under System Variables, and then set it to UTF-8.
    • For Linux 64, set the environmental variable LC_ALL to en_US.utf8. To set the environmental variable, run the following command from Linux 64:
      setenv LC_ALL en_US.utf8
  2. Restart the Secure Agent after you set the environmental variable.
