Class SCS5553Writer

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Closeable, Flushable, Appendable


    public class SCS5553Writer
    extends SCS5224Writer
    The SCS5553Writer class writes an SCS 5553 data stream to an output stream, translating characters into bytes of the specified CCSID. SCS5553Writer extends the SCS5224Writer and adds support for presentation of control characters, character rotation, grid lines, and font scaling. The 5553 is a DBCS data stream.
