get-collate-table [85] (10) Recommended

        get-collate-table [85] ( )
                -> ( HOLLERITH );

This call returns the collate table being used by the server to match names. If index A and index B in the string are the same character, characters A and B are considered equivalent. An empty collate table indicates that the server considers all characters different.

Currently, the lyskomd server only deals with 8-bit characters. Clients should be prepared for collate tables of any length. Characters whose code are greater than the length of the collate table should be considered to be unique.
