The Natural profile parameter

||An alternative character set is to be used. It
can be defined by the profile parameters

PM=Iaffects any system controlled output screen items, that is, system variables and PF key lines. Moreover, all non-alphanumeric fields, for example, numeric and date are affected. In addition, for Natural Web I/O Interface terminals the field sequence is changed from left to right into right to left. The field inversion routine is supplied as assembler module
NATPMin the Natural source library and can be modified in case of need.
PM=I, see Bidirectional Language Support in the Unicode and Code Page Support documentation.
