[SystemZ][z/OS] Add the functions needed for handling EBCDIC I/O

Authored by abhina.sreeskantharajan on Apr 14 2021, 7:55 AM.



This patch adds the basic functions needed for controlling auto conversion on z/OS.
Auto conversion is enabled on untagged input file to ASCII by making the assumption that all untagged files are EBCDIC encoded. Output files are auto converted to EBCDIC IBM-1047.
This change also enables conversion for stdin/stdout/stderr.

Looks good to me. Minor nits noted inline. It would be nice if we had a bit more testing coverage.


minor nit: #endif __MVS__

rebase + removing call to enableAutoConversion in getSTDIN anymore because changeStdinToBinary is no longer called because we are passing the OF_Text flag now

Some places use #ifdef and others #if defined(__MVS__). We should be consistent.


minor nit. Rather than using the short names 819 & 1047 we should use the full names iso8859-1 & ibm-1047.

Changes in this new diff:

  • changed 819,1047 to full names in encoding.ll
  • use #ifdef MVS for consistency

Thanks Sean. There's seems to be mixed use in this file, so I just updated all uses of MVS in this patch to be #ifdef for consistency.
