    Hello,

    When I was installing Python 2.7.13 and Python 3.6.1 for z/OS, I hit the same issue. Below I take the error for Python 3.6.1as example.

    1. Ran python36/bin/install_all_packages, the error is as follpwing.
      BASH_PREFIX is /bin
      PERL_PREFIX is /usr/bin

    2. I attempted to read info/files, but it was unreadable
      cat info/files ▒▒>/▒▒?▒/Ŏ▒▒>▒>▒▒/%%^/%%^▒/▒,/▒▒ˎ▒▒>▒>▒▒/%%^▒/▒,/▒▒▒▒>▒>▒▒/%%^▒▒▒▒▒^▒▒▒▒^▒/▒▒/▒%▒ˎ▒▒>▒>▒>▒▒/%%^▒/▒,/▒▒▒>▒%▒▒▒/%%?▒/ǎ▒>▒%▒▒▒/▒▒?▒/▒^▒>▒?Ď▒>▒%▒▒▒▒>▒?▒▒^▒▒/>▒/▒▒^▒▒%▒▒Ď▒>▒%▒▒▒▒>▒?▒▒^▒▒/>▒/▒▒^▒▒%▒▒ǎ▒>▒%▒▒▒▒▒▒^▒`>▒^▒▒>▒▒▒?>▒ǎ▒>▒%▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒^▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒▒/▒▒▒▒ǎ▒>▒%▒▒▒%▒▒▒▒^▒▒▒▒▒/▒^▒/▒▒▒▒▒Ď▒>▒%▒▒▒%▒▒▒▒^▒▒▒▒▒/▒^▒/▒▒▒▒▒ǎ▒>▒%▒▒▒%▒▒▒▒^▒▒/>▒▒▒Ď▒>▒%▒▒▒%▒▒▒▒^▒▒_/▒▒?▒▒Ď▒>▒%▒▒▒%▒▒▒▒^▒▒_/▒▒?▒▒ǎ▒>▒%▒▒▒%▒▒▒▒^:?▒Ď▒>▒%▒▒▒%▒▒▒▒^:?▒ǎ▒>▒%▒▒▒▒▒_/▒▒?▒▒ǎ

    3. Then I found it was with codeset 819
      $ cat -W filecodeset=819 info/files
      bin/autotag
      bin/install_all_packages
      bin/install_package
      bin/install_setup_edit_variables
      bin/uninstall_package
      include/alloca.h
      include/autotag_info.c
      include/encode_standard_files.c
      include/encode_standard_files.h
      include/gcc_sync_functions.h
      include/httpuv_RequestHeaders.h
      include/libuv_pthread_barrier.c
      include/libuv_pthread_barrier.h
      include/libuv_scandir.c
      include/libuv_semaphore.c
      include/libuv_semaphore.h
      include/libuv_zos.c
      include/libuv_zos.h
      include/semaphore.h

    4. I attempted to change the codeset to 1047
      iconv -f 819 -t 1047 files > files.my ls -l
      total 32
      -rw-r–r-- 1 BPXROOT DEFLT1 0 Apr 12 2017 edit_files
      -rw-r–r-- 1 BPXROOT DEFLT1 477 Apr 12 2017 files
      -rw-r–r-- 1 BPXROOT DEFLT1 477 Sep 7 06:43 files.my
      cp files files.bak mv files.my files

    5. Reran python36/bin/install_all_packages, the first error was fixed. However, seems that the same problem existed in all the packages.

    PERL_PREFIX is /usr/bin

    I do not think it is good way to change the codeset one by one. Would you please help check if you could/need update the installation package? Or could you please give me some suggestion? Thanks in advance.

    Hi Linda,

    Thanks for using our tools. Encoding problems are typical if some variables were not set. Please, check the output of command “env|sort”. It should include:

    _CEE_RUNOPTS=“FILETAG(AUTOCVT,AUTOTAG) POSIX(ON)”
    _BPXK_AUTOCVT=ON
    _TAG_REDIR_ERR=txt
    _TAG_REDIR_IN=txt
    _TAG_REDIR_OUT=txt

    Also there is very detailed instructions in file README.ZOS. This file is available in the archive and also you are able to download it separately from Customer portal.
