Installing the interpubs Database

The interpubs database is similar to pubs2, and contains French and German data.

Back up the original installintpubs script, in case you experience problems with the edited script.
  1. Set your terminal to display 8-bit characters.
  2. Verify that iso_1, iso_15, Roman8, Roman 9, or UTF-8 is installed as either the default character set or as an additional character set.

    The interpubs database contains 8-bit characters and is available for use at SAP ASE installations using the ISO 8859-1 (iso_1), ISO 8859-15 (iso_15), Roman 8, or Roman9 (for HP-UX) character set.

  3. Determine the type (raw partition, logical volume, operating system file, and so on) and location of the device where you will be storing the interpubs database. You will need to provide this information later.
  4. Execute the script, using the -J flag to ensure that the database is installed with the correct character set:
    isql -Usa -Ppassword -Sservername -Jiso_1 \
     -i $SYBASE/$SYBASE_ASE/scripts/iso_1/installintpubs
