Set up a translation buffer for input. The data will be converted from a host representation of (SIHOST,SRHOST) and data type of STYPE into the machine's native representation and data type DTYPE. So, it converts from foreign to local format. Since all processing must be done in native format on the machine the program is running on, this translation is most often needed for input from a file.
