How can I cause my C++ program to display a 1/2 symbol?
In the source code I have used ALT+177, and ALT+0189. They both show as the half symbol in the source code, and sometimes even display correctly - but usually the display is two left facing chevrons.
Help?

I suspect it works for you when the Windows Codepage is 1252 (Latin I), and for central europe's codepage 1250 you get the chevron.

Well, pretty few details. But: as you already said your using ALT+177 in BB. Are you sure that the output device of your application (!=BB) is using a font containing symbols for this?

Further details: using Win7 on a 64bit PC.
Does BB have a method to select a particular code page?
How would I do that?
