APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When executing batches or commands in "Run Command", outputs in
    console are garbled.
    The outputs are in local encoding, like MS932, Shift-JIS in
    Japanese, GB2312 in Chinese
    
    RIT does not handle Asian local multi-byte languages in console
    output of "Run Command",
    instead, it seems RIT interprets  the stream of bytes fixed as
    UTF-8 so I think this causes the corruption
    

Local fix
