Mimer SQL Character Sets


For character data, Mimer SQL uses the character set ISO 8859-1, also known as the LATIN1 character set. By default, character data is sorted in the numerical order of its code according to the ISO8BIT collation.

For national character data, Mimer SQL uses the Unicode character set, which is a universal character set, see http://www.unicode.org for more information. National character data is sorted according to the UCS_BASIC collation. UCS_BASIC is a collation in which the ordering is determined entirely by the Unicode scalar values of the characters in the strings being sorted.

See the Mimer SQL Reference Manual, Appendix B, Character Sets for more information.
