There are at least two very convenient GUI ways do to this: (1) (g)ViM: assuming that you use UTF-8 to interptet Unicode and that your locale is properly set (xx_XX-UTF-8), you can paste the character (i.e.) „來“, point the cursor over it, and then: * key sequence 'ga' will return '<來> 20358, Hex 4f86, Octal 47606'; * key sequence 'g8' will return 'e4 be 86' (actual bytes used to produce that letter; * key sequence '[Ctrl+v]u4f86' will print „來“ (in Insert mode). (2) deskutils/gucharmap: GTK2 application, doesn't pull many Gnome dependencies, has highly professionally made database. 'View -> Find -> 來 -> Character details' will provide you with the following: U+4F86 CJK UNIFIED IDEOGRAPH-4F86 General Character Properties Unicode category: Letter, Other Various Useful Representations UTF-8: 0xE4 0xBE 0x86 UTF-16: 0x4F86 C octal escaped UTF-8: \344\276\206 XML decimal entity: 來 CJK Ideograph Information Definition in English: come, coming; return, returning Mandarin Pronunciation: LAI2 LAI4 Cantonese Pronunciation: lai4 loi4 loi6 Japanese On Pronunciation: RAI Japanese Kun Pronunciation: KURU Tang Pronunciation: *ləi ləi Korean Pronunciation: LAY Greetings. -- Nikola Lečić :: Никола Лечић _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
