- Subject: entering special symbols in mintty
If I use the default Cygwin.bat file, I can enter special
characters with the Alt key, but this doesn't work in
mintty, unless there's some option I've overlooked.
For example, to enter the copyright symbol (Â) in a standard
Windows application, including Command Prompt, I can hold
down the Alt key and type 0 1 6 9 on the keypad. This
doesn't work in mintty. Would this be a reasonable feature
to ask for?
For the record:
