Multi-byte applications

OpenEdge supports multi-byte characters. This means that you can develop applications for countries whose languages require multi-byte character sets.
Double-byte characters comprise a subset of multi-byte characters. Languages that use double-byte characters include Chinese, Japanese, and Korean.
For more information on multi-byte languages, see Using Multi-byte Code Pages. For information on running multi-byte character clients, see Deployment and Configuration.
