abstract class %IO.I.TranslationDevice extends %IO.IParts.CharacterIO

This class is intended as a secondary superclass for those Stream classes that are implemented using Cache devices and thus support the use of a Cache Translation Table for character set conversion on input, on output, or both. It contains a property TranslationTable that names the translation table to be used, if any. It also implements a number of classmethods to support the use of a Translation Table. This class also extends the class ILineStream which facilitates line-by-line Read and Write operations.
