Hi, thanks for replying. Well, I do not know much about EBCDIC. I will give more details: I am working on Windows XP, using Eclipse. I am writing a batch that will generate an ASCII file which will be read by another program in a mainframe environment. They have asked me to include in that line the xFF EBCDIC value.
Well a value such as xFF is just a value. The difference between ASCII, ANSI, EBCDIC, etc is how the values are interpreted. For example, the value 75 (decimal) is a 'K' in ASCII, but a full stop (period) in EBCDIC.
This link has a table of ASCII and EBCDIC codes side by side, though I'm sure you can easily find nicer ones with Google.
