    how to convert to IA5 char set??


    does anyone know a way to convert chars to IA5 encoding? I think java doesnt
    support IA5 encoding yet...

    As far as I can see from what I have been able to track down in various
    references, the IA5 encoding differs from the standard 7-bit ASCII encoding
    in only a single position, namely the ASCII '$' symbol is replaced by a
    generic currency symbol. Here's the references I found for the two
    character sets: IA5
    (http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/cgi-bi.../qb3aq501/F.58), ASCII
    (http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/cgi-bi.../qb3aq501/F.14).

    If this agrees with your information, I'd suggest you just treat it as ASCII
    until somebody complains.

    The table in your code doesnt seem similar with the one i have. The IA5 charset
    Im using is the one used by Nokia. Here's some examples:
    (symbol = value in hex)
    AT SIGN = 0000
    POUND STERLING = 0001
    DOLLAR SIGN = 0002
    YEN SIGN = 0003

    You can find the same table in this site:

    It looks like IA5 is the same as 7bit ASCII for most of the printing characters
    but most of the non-printing (i.e., control codes) codes (except CR and LF)
    have been replaced by other glyphs/characters. So if you are starting with
    7bit ASCII i think paul is basically correct, you can treat IA5 as if it
    were just US_ASCII or iso-8859-1. If, however, you have arbitrary UNICODE
    characters you will need to a UNICODE to IA5 conversion.
