Windows NT: The GetConsoleCP function returns the identity of the input code page used by the console associated with the calling process. A console uses its input code page to translate keyboard input into the corresponding character value.
Windows 95: On Japanese and Korean implementations of Windows 95, the GetConsoleCP function returns the VM code page, because the OEM code page can be either 437 or DBCS. On all other implementations of Windows 95, the GetConsoleCP function returns the OEM code page.
This function has no parameters.
The return value is a code that identifies the code page.
A code page maps 256 character codes to individual characters. Different code pages include different special characters, typically customized for a language or a group of languages.
To set a console’s input code page, use the SetConsoleCP function. To set and query a console’s output code page, use the SetConsoleOutputCP and GetConsoleOutputCP functions.
