You are right.
One of my os's tells me the following:

MS-DOS 6.3 Help: CHCP

Displays the number of the active character set (code page).
You can also use the CHCP command to change the active character set
for all devices that support character set switching.

You must install the program before you can use the CHCP command.

Before that, I got errors:

< MS-Dos 6.2 Internal IDE = C:\>chcp 437
Bad function "437"

After issueing NLSFUNC, CHCP works ok.

Greetings from Henri.

This forum contains echomail areas hosted on Nightmare BBS You can browse local echomail areas, italian fidonet areas and a selection of international fidonet areas, reading messages posted by users in Nightmare BBS or even other BBSs all over the world. You can find file areas too (functional to fidonet technology). You can browse echomail areas and download files with no registration, but if you want to write messages in echomail areas, or use fidonet netmail (private messages with fidomet technology), you have to register. Only a minimal set of data is required, functional to echomail and netmail usage (name, password, email); a registration and login with facebook is provided too, to allow easy registration. If you won't follow rules (each echomail areas has its own, regularly posted in the echomail), your account may be suspended;
