Hello everyone.
I want to print some characters I found in ASCII code,for example I want to print #187 from ASCII ,but I receive a this[^] as output.
I use ubuntu and in terminal I have encoding: Unicode UTF-8
What's wrong?


What I have tried:

#include <stdio.h>

int main(void)
    unsigned char c = 187;
    printf("\n\n\n    %c   \n\n\n",c);

What is "it" ?

Decimal 187 is HEX BB. Is that actually the character that you want to print?

Thanks. But I still don't know what the problem is.

That's not relevant. :-)
