Bug Description

A Linux application can read and write EBCDIC-encoded data sets as ASCII.
A Linux application can read data sets in the same format as resulting from an FTP transfer from z/OS to Linux (including record translations)

Implementation:
- zdsfs transparently converts all data using a conversion table specified during mount
- Users must be able to specify applicable conversions on a per data set level (e.g. using configuration files specifying conversion steps per data set name)
- also perform record conversion (records to newline) => the result should look exactly like the result of an FTP (both binary and ascii), depending on per-data set configuration directive

Just for the records:
This ticket will highly likely end up as a duplicate,
since it will be covered by the planned update of the s390-tools package anyway.
But for marking this as a duplicate I need more details ...

If it correct that this feature is included in latest 2.17 with what I can read from the changelog "zdsfs: Add transparent codepage conversion"?
