Mainframe to ASCII conversion
Hi,

I am thinking to write some mapper to do conversion of mainframe files to
ascii format and contribute back.

And before even i do something i wanted to confirm from you guys the
following

   - Do we already have some mapreduce library doing the same work ?
   - Is there anything in Hadoop which makes such kind of conversion not
   possible , so that i dont end up spending time on something which cannot be
   done

I am not mainframe guy so wanted to ask upfront.

Here is what in my mind till now

In Oracle JDK following are supported encodings [1] , i plan to use already
existing libraries such as [2] or [3] to do the conversion.

Thank you for your time and guidance.

Regards,

Jagat Singh
