Extended Character Map for OS/2

Extended Character Map for OS/2 (previously known as Double Byte Character Map) is a character map program that is designed to support characters from both single- and multi-byte encodings. It supports both Unicode (Plane 0) text, plus a number of specific East Asian codepages, in addition to the current system codepage.

Conventional OS/2 character map programs support only single-byte characters, which is generally sufficient for Western languages, but suddenly becomes inadequate when you need access to the vast Unicode character set, or writing systems like Chinese, Japanese, or Korean (collectively known as 'CJK'). Extended Character Map is designed to fill in this gap.

Extended Character Map does not require your system codepage(s) to be set to any particular value. It should be fully-functional on any language version of OS/2.
