    Now available for download on the Rocket Community portal, please find a new release of cURL for z/OS. This port of v7.52.1 was implemented with z/OS enhanced ASCII support. This means it will work with both ASCII and EBCDIC files but be sure your files are tagged. Don’t forget to read the README.ZOS file.

    with cURL 7.52.1, when I type curl --version in an OMVS shell, I get a response in ASCII. What parameter do I need to add to get response in OMVS EBCDIC?

    update - I added these to my .profile and it is now EBCDIC:
    export _CEE_RUNOPTS="FILETAG(AUTOCVT,AUTOTAG) POSIX(ON)"
    export _BPXK_AUTOCVT=ON

    Yes, these variables should be determined in a config file (e.g., ~/.profile).
