The name of the code page used in memory.
Use Internal Code Page (-cpinternal) to identify the code page used in memory and for graphical clients. For graphical clients, the -cpinternal code page should be the same code page that the operating system uses. If you do not use -cpinternal, the iso8859-1 code page is used by default. To retrieve the value of this startup parameter at run time, use the CPINTERNAL attribute of the SESSION System handle.
Note: Do not use a 7-bit table with -cpinternal. Use 7-bit tables for converting data from a 7-bit terminal to another code page only. Do not use them for character conversion in memory or for the database.
