Hi, I'm making some titles for an event tonight and I've just discovered that there's no "" letter on the keyboard. Neither the ASCII code ALT+164 or ALT+165 works.

I can't even find the accents () for example, but this is not as important as the (imagine that if I type AO -the word i need to use several times- it means "year" but ANO means "***".....)

If anyone knows what can I do to find the "" please tell!!

Thanks a lot

can you copy it? Or maybe it isn't in the font.

alt 0241

(hold the alt key and type 0241 on the numeric pad)

Keep in mind, you are simply regurgitating numerical representations of the ASCII character set. The 'symbol' equivalents you are providing here are actually quite incorrect. They only represent symbols that are available in the font to which you are applying the numbers.

Use a font that complies to the standard Extended ASCII Codes symbology and you shouldn't have any issues.

You had it right the first time... #164, #165 are the characters you should be using. You were simply using a font that did not map extended characters in a standard way.

If you are persisting any of this data for later use, you really should use the correct character values, so that other systems will represent your information correctly.

Actually Windows uses Unicode (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unicode) not ASCII and the char mapping is standardized.

The codes used to represent various symbols are specified in an ISO document someplace.

That made me giggle a bit. I'm assuming you don't code much, or you are reading the forums in Kanji.

Yes, Windows uses Unicode, but the actual encoding (unless you require non-Latin multi-byte encoding) is UTF-8 which is basically the equivalent of ASCII. Your just splitting hairs for no reason at this point.

The point is the old DOS code Alt 164 doesn't get you the character in LiveText but the new code Alt 0124 does. The OP wasn't trying to do this in C++ after all.

And I was probably 'coding' before you were born. Hell, we didn't even have ones back then, all we had were zeros :)

Ahhh.. you must have been coding on the telegraph I presume... a little before my time indeed. My first program was in ALGOL on a Burroughs 5500 in 1977. I heard you guys used the innovative rock and sand compiler for that stuff. Awesome work. :beerchug:

I hated ALGOL, Liked FORTRAN much better. But I never liked the key punching.

Now that the hijacking of the thread is complete my work here is done!

Quoting Beatles lyrics in guru-meditation-hexadecimal will get you nowhere... However... Klingon in binary is always a challenge. :D Silly Amiga users...
