Can you point me to one in particular to look at?

I am pretty sure we cannot do the #pragma on the command line. There is a
parm for this on the compile command, but it will only allow an EBCDIC
CCSID. For some reason, in the code itself you can use ASCII or UTF-8.
Putting it in a header file does not even work. I will look again though.

Redirecting the header files is a good idea, certainly worth exploring.
Ideally, when we re-look at this we will be able to greatly minimize the
wrappers anyway.

Thanks

Mark
