Abstract The inability of existing programming languages to handle character strings from more than one or two alphabets is mentioned and a scheme for declaring additional alphabets is proposed. The scheme provides for: many-to-one encodings, right or left justification, collating sequences different from numeric sequence, variations in character size (number of bits) from alphabet to alphabet, and arbitrary source-language character representation.
