code pages in linux?

I am writing a file transmission program in Java, and I want it to interact with Linux users as well. I installed knoppix to test the program. But I haven't considered the effect of possibly different code pages between the sender and the receiver. I do not know if there is a similar concept as "cp850" in Linux. If there were where it can be found?

hey, the "file.encoding" Java property is iso "ISO 8859-15" in Mandrake 9, and "cp1252" in Windows. I read A tutorial on character code issues and it seems that both encoding are compatible to some extent.
