i need to use high ascii chars for example to log in to website etc.
How can i do this? Is it any application which allow to do this?
Nowadays most of the terminals we use are able to display unicode symbols. Thus, this box:
| Hello World! |
can easily be rewritten like this using unicode chars:
│ Hello World! │
Several command-line tools such as boxes or the Perl CPAN module Text::ASCIITable can draw regular ASCII boxes without unicode chars.
I'm going through this GNU awk example.
This program needs the ord() and chr() library functions which you can get here.
And that's where I get a little confused.
