Hi Frank,

Refering to these as "C APIs" is one of my pet peeves.  They're system
APIs available to all ILE languages. With the exception of "__errno"
they're not part of the ILE C runtime library and are therefore not "C

Unfortunately, I've never had the priveledge of working with Japanese
character sets. I suspect that you need to:

a) create source PFs that are tagged with the apporpriate CCSID for the
Japanese system.

b) make sure my PFs are tagged with CCSID 37.

c) Copy the members from my PF to the Japanese one so that the characters
get translated correctly.

d) Compile from the Japanese files.

This is purely speculation, though... like I said, I have never tried it.

Correct, these are case-sensitive.  If you change them to uppercase, they
won't work. You have to get the characters to correctly translate to the
Japanese CCSID. These are part of the operating system, there's no way I
can change the way their capitalized.
