    I believe that is a compiler/platform specific issue. What compiler are you using?

    If you redirect the out put to say a .txt file, it will work. But it seems like the console doesn't like those characters. I'm using WinXP.
    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    
    int main(void){
      FILE *fp;
      fp=fopen("tmp.txt","w");
      fprintf(fp,"Ašucar");
      return 0;
    }

    the second character you want is 0x80 .. dont know bout the other one. i remember this one bcoz i was getting it in some program i was experimenting with.

    printf("%c".0x80);
    thats what i mean . u ll get the second character.

    by the way, i use borland 3.0 on win98.
    Code:
    >+++++++++[<++++++++>-]<.>+++++++[<++++>-]<+.+++++++..+++.[-]>++++++++[<++++>-] <.>+++++++++++[<++++++++>-]<-.--------.+++.------.--------.[-]>++++++++[<++++>- ]<+.[-]++++++++++.

    just thought id specify that. lots of people use different compilers. ascii chars wil have the same value,but well, i thought id tell.
    Code:
    >+++++++++[<++++++++>-]<.>+++++++[<++++>-]<+.+++++++..+++.[-]>++++++++[<++++>-] <.>+++++++++++[<++++++++>-]<-.--------.+++.------.--------.[-]>++++++++[<++++>- ]<+.[-]++++++++++.

    Look up the function setlocale. Your default locale is set to "C", which means 7-bit ANSCII.

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.
