Extension List

The extension list parameter specifies the extension of a file on an iSeries, eServer™ i5, or System i5®. You can specify more than one extension parameter in the extension list. The code pages of files with the specified extensions are translated from the EBCDIC code page to the ASCII code page when the file is transferred between the iSeries, eServer i5, or System i5 and the client. Up to three characters are allowed. There are two special cases:
  • A dot alone (. ) indicates that data for files having no extension should be converted.
  • The character pair .* indicates that data for all files should be converted.
