unicode characters in code

Recommended Posts



I have been reading the unicode standard version 8 documentation and I want to use some 'special characters' in my code.

For example...

local $$= "myVariable"


Is this possible?

It's a lot easier to write this code in SciTE or any other IDE and just run it. You will get the answer yourself. :)

To do something like this with AutoIt, you need to parse the name in some way and assign it using standard word characters. In other words, create your own language syntax. I sometimes do things like this by assigning the hexadecimal returned from StringToBinary(). This method introduces case sensitivity into the variable name, which brings with it some potential uses. Assign() is the function you need.

I would only do something like this if it makes the code easier to write. In most situations it just makes things more complicated.
