Where is the "bit data" flag in the System Tables?

P: n/a
I need to determine where the "bit data" flag (as applied on a CHAR
and other columns) is stored in the system tables. I'm trying to add
data mappings to our product (MyGeneration) so if you ask me why, I
just gotta know, can anybody give me a select statement that can join
with SYSCOLUMNS or something to find out if the "bit data" is?

Have a look at SYSCAT.COLUMNS.CODEPAGE - the value there is 0 (zero) for FOR
BIT DATA columns.
