[egenix-users] unixODBC config problem

Hi all,

I'm using mxodbc with a Sybase odbc driver on ubuntu 12.04 with unixODBC 
2.3x. I am accessing a Sybase database with a library charset called 
marc-8. On Windows 7, I can access this database using mxodbc and 
transmit the characters faithfully if I set the odbc manager to 
Communication Charset = No Conversion, and possibly Client Charset = OEM 
(although I think this last setting is getting ignored). On ubuntu with 
unixodbc, my character data out of the box is getting mangled. Can you 
tell me how to set the driver to use the same settings I have on my 
Windows machine? I can't seem to find any info on the relevant 
parameters for odbc.ini.
