Description Florian Weimer 2017-01-25 12:38:15 UTC
This code page is IBM850 with the addition of the Euro sign.  Apparently, it has some real-world use.

commit 799c8d6905433ad56f26ccab4855b36f1d1ddbfc

    Add new codepage charmaps/IBM858 [BZ #21084]
    This code page is identical to code page 850 except that X'D5'
    has been changed from LI61 (dotless i) to SC20 (euro symbol).
    The code points from /x01 to /x1f in the /localedata/charmaps/IBM858
    file have the same mapping as those in localedata/charmaps/ANSI_X3.4-1968.
    That means they disagree with with
    in that range.
    For example, localedata/charmaps/IBM858 and localedata/charmaps/ANSI_X3.4-1968 have:
       “<U0001>     /x01         START OF HEADING (SOH)”
    whereas CP00858.txt has:
       “01 SS000000        Smiling Face”
    That means that CP00858.txt is not really ASCII-compatible and to make
    it ASCII-compatible we deviate fro CP00858.txt in the code points from /x01
    to /x1f.
    	[BZ #21084]
    	* benchtests/strcoll-inputs/filelist#en_US.UTF-8: Add IBM858 and ibm858.c.
    	* iconvdata/Makefile: Add IBM858.
    	* iconvdata/gconv-modules: Add IBM858.
    	* iconvdata/ibm858.c: New file.
    	* iconvdata/tst-tables.sh: Add IBM858
    	* localedata/charmaps/IBM858: New file.
