Re: EBCDIC is not being displayed correctly

Nevertheless, I shall take a look at it myself and will let you know which code points appear to be incorrect. Thanks. I will post my analysis of your "e2a" table in a few minutes. I THINK I FOUND THE PROBLEM! EDP appears to be using code page 500! (not 37): (https://www.kreativekorp.com/...

Re: EBCDIC is not being displayed correctly

We use a third-party Hex Editor library, and here's their conversion table: Just out of curiosity, do they document where THEY got it from? We can change it to '!' but there may be other problems in this table, so perhaps you could take a look. I do not wish to be rude, but is there a reason why yo...

Re: EBCDIC is not being displayed correctly

P.S. It would also be nice if the left hand file offset column wasn't so wide too. In the EDP comparison example I posted, the file is only 224 bytes in size. Yet, the left hand file offset column is 16 hexadecimal digits wide! I seriously doubt anyone would be comparing two 64-petabyte binary files...

EBCDIC is not being displayed correctly

EDP has a Binary Comparison Character set option to display binary data in either EBCDIC or ASCII. As an IBM Mainframe programmer, I use EBCDIC a lot, and noticed some characters are not displaying correctly: :( edp-ebcdic.png On the left is the string: "Success ! CDSG, STPQ and LPQ: OK". ...

Ah! Maybe that's the trick!

Thanks, MSpagni. I'll give it a try.

EDP 13: Missing "Toggle Text/Binary Comparison" command

. The "Toggle Text/Binary Comparison" command appears to have been removed in EDP 13. Why? It is a very valuable command that I use quite often! How can I get it back? As you can see in the below screenshots, my customized EDP 12 file comparison toolbar has a button for it in the 7th posit...

Save/restore customized toolbars before/after install?

Whenever a new version of EDP is installed, the toolbars for both directory comparison and the file comparison are reset to their default, thereby forcing me to re-customize them all over again (which can be a PITA!). Is there a way to prevent this from happening? Is there some save/restore procedur...

The screenshots problem is easy to work around - attach 3 to one post then 2 to a following post. (DOH!) Silly me. :oops: Okay, here's the first screen shot of the initial directory comparison display, with the 'Show Only Differences" filter applied and the "Group By" set to "St...
