Re: FW: Question on IBM's Unicode enabled product Support.

Your questions are pretty general. To answer about COBOL for 390 (IBM
COBOL for OS/390 & z/OS) does plan to support Unicode (UTF-16 data type,
conversions to/from Uicode, etc.). Existing COBOL products "support"
Unicode only to the extent they can tolerate it transparently (byte string
oriented operations) only.

OS/390 does provide some support for Unicode, but it is hard to know from
your broad questions how to provide the information you are looking for.
Please e-mail me off-line and I will put you in contact with someone from
OS/390 who can answer your questions.

Has IBM OS/390 Ver 2.6, 2.7 or 2.9 MVS/ESA Operating support for

IBM RACF Security Facility supported for Unicode...?

and IBM COBOL for MVS Unicode enabled...
