Character Set - Code page
1 - About
The term code page originated from IBM's EBCDIC-based mainframe systems, but many vendors use this term including Microsoft, SAP, and Oracle Corporation.
Vendors often allocate their own code page number to a character encoding, even if it is better known by another name.
For example UTF-8 character encoding has code page:
- numbers 1208 at IBM,
- 65001 at Microsoft,
- 4110 at SAP
