Command basic.inputparity Statement/BASIC Program
Applicable release versions: AP 6.2
Category BASIC Program (486)
Description enables or disables the extended character set (xcs) for the current process.

When xcs is on, the high order bit is not stripped from input that is transmitted to the system. This allows characters in the range 128 through 255 to be used as unique characters.

When xcs is off, the high order bit is stripped from input. Characters from 128 through 255 are not available.

The Pick/BASIC "inputparity" statement is equivalent to the TCL command "xcs."
