Hi there, wondering if anyone can point me in the best direction rather than re invent a wheel somewhere.

I am just looking at converting df19 to df20 and the first thing was a simple utility that writes a text file using 'direct_output'. I quickly discovered that not all things can now read that file as it is utf8 encoded.

Question is.. what is a simple way to still write the old OEM text format (including chars from 127 to 255) ?. I can see in this forum that it may be possible to use Uchar data type to build the data to output but that seems a bit clumsy and I am hoping there is a simple way (as always) such as 'direct_output channel 1 filemode:OEM' or something similar.
