Name of the code page that the AVM uses in memory.
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 AVM defaults to the iso8859-1 code page.
Note: Do not use a 7-bit table with -cpinternal. Only use 7-bit tables for converting data from a 7-bit terminal to another code page. Do not use them for character conversion in memory, or for the database.
To retrieve the value of this startup parameter at runtime, use the CPINTERNAL attribute of the SESSION system handle.
