ABL and R-code Deployment and Management : Managing Procedure Libraries : Code page compatibility

Code page compatibility

The Internal Code Page (-cpinternal) startup parameter determines the internal code page that OpenEdge uses in memory. The code page in which r-code is compiled and the internal code page of the session in which the r-code runs must be compatible. That is, the r-code code page must be either the internal code page, undefined, or convertible to the internal code page.
If the code page of the r-code, from either an operating system file, a memory-mapped procedure library, or a standard procedure library, is not the same as the session's internal code page, OpenEdge performs an in-memory conversion of the r-code text segments to the session's internal code page.
Note: If you use the R-code In Code Page (-cprcodein) startup parameter to specify a code page for reading r-code text segments, OpenEdge reads the text segments as if they were written in that code page, even if the text segments were written in a different code page.
For more information about the Internal Code Page (-cpinternal) and R-code In Code Page (-cprcodein) startup parameters, see OpenEdge Deployment: Startup Command and Parameter Reference.
