an easy one - How to output infinum sign

How can I output, with cout, an infinum sign from ASCII table (num. 236) in MS Visual C++ / console application?

I was playing around with char(236), but no luck.. A different character table maybe?

TNX!

How about:

     char inf = 236;
     cout << inf << endl;

??

That's the same as using:
 cout << char(236) << endl;
and it does not work! I don't get an infinum sign.
I think problem is in the char table I'm using.. no infinum sign..
TNX anyway...

You may need to select a different default font for your console window.  This is done by clicking the icon in the top left corner and chosing properties.

Try printing "\236"... i.e. cout << "\236"

One way to ensure your FONT or character set has the sign is to type it manually at the command prompt.

Hold down ALT, type 236 [ON THE KEYPAD only], release the ALT.  If it is some unexpected character, then DanRollins has it pegged.

If it works, try this code; it should also work.

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

void main(void)
{
     printf("ì %c \xEC\n", 236);
     cout << "ì " << char(236) << " \xEC" << endl;
}

That's the problem!
I have a different character set (no infinum sign).
Can I "override" or re-set a different character set in my c++ program?
Thank you!

In the Windows Explorer, right-click on your EXE and drag and rop it, choosing "Create Shortcut here"  Then right-click that and choose Properties and then set the font.

Or run the app, right-click the top-left corner, set properties set the font and indicate "Save properties for future windows with the same title"

There may be a way to set font for a console window programatically, but you probably only need that for a commerical product.
