screen the keystroke sequence to get such character ( . for this case) and the
numerical code corresponding to the character (10 in this case).
Characters that are not defined appear as a dark square in the characters list
( ) and show (
) at the bottom of the display, even though a numerical code
exists for all of them. Numerical characters show the corresponding number at
the bottom of the display.
Letters show the code
i.e., ~ followed by the corresponding letter, for
example, when you highlight M, you will see M displayed at the lower left side
of the screen, indicating the use of ~m. On the other hand, m shows the
M, or ~„m.
Greek characters, such as , will show the code
, or ~‚s. Some
characters, like , do not have a keystroke sequence associated with them.
Therefore, the only way to obtain such characters is through the character list by
highlighting the desired character and pressing @ECHO1@ or @ECHO@.
Use @ECHO1@ to copy one character to the stack and return immediately to normal
calculator display. Use @ECHO@ to copy a series of characters to the stack. To
return to normal calculator display use $.
See Appendix D for more details on the use of special characters. Also,
Appendix G shows shortcuts for producing special characters.
