On z/OS the text files are typically in EBCDIC format. If autoconversion is enabled, it is also possible to use tags to mark the files that should be converted. If the files are not tagged correctly, autoconversion will not work.

The following command will tag a file as ascii text:

chtag -tc ISO8859-1 file

The following command will remove any tag from a file:

chtag -r file
