Those are part of the Extended ASCII Codes, cowsgonemadd3,


Enjoy.

I had heard of the ASCII in my research looking for these.
How am I supposed to use them? I can not copy and paste the parts I need from the image.

It takes time and a lot of pre-planning, cgm.

Hold the "Alt" key down and enter the number 205, then let the alt key up an you'll get ═

Then do "alt+187 and you'll get ╗

put them together and you'll get ═╗ which would be the upper right hand corner of an object.

With a little planning, using that chart you can get a double line rectangle with a square inside :

╔═╗
║■║
╚═╝

Once upon a time, that was the way we drew stuff on our monochrome, text only monitors.

In a galaxy, far, far away.


There are some "ascii draw" programs that make this easier - see Wikipedia's Ascii Art Article.

Enjoy.

Uh, I'm assuming you are using a PC with Windows,

and, I forgot to mention, you must use the number pad, not the numbers across the top of the keyboard.

Thanks

Don't know what brand laptop you have, but most have a numeric pad.

You may have to hold down the "Fn" key to use it, though.

Yes it does have those "blue" letters and such you can use with the "fn" key I did not even think of that. I was thinking you meant a dedicated numeric pad but those only come on the 17 inch screen laptops.

Testing:

Does not work on the laptop...

Works on my laptop.

Hold down the "alt" key,

hold down the "Fn" key the entire time you are inputting the numbers,

then type the 3 digit number using the numeric keypad section of your keyboard (again, not the numbers across the top),

then release the "alt" key.
