Type: Character

Default: ' ' (space)

Caplin’s Real Time Text Protocol (RTTP) uses the '/' character as a separator, but Reuters uses the '/' character in symbol names. To prevent RTTP processing from interpreting the '/' character in a Reuters symbol as a separator, front-end applications replace the '/' in a symbol name with a placeholder character (map-character) unused by either RTTP or Reuters. The TREP adapter replaces the placeholder (map-character) with the original '/' character when communicating with Reuters.

Example: specifying a space (default)
map-character ' '
