%chars

Selected sets of Unicode characters

Syntax

%chars

Description

%chars is a Scilab constant made of a structure gathering various sets of Unicode characters.

%chars aims to easily access to greek letters, most frequent mathematical symbols, arrows, etc. After displaying %chars in the console or displaying this page in the help browser, copy/pasting selected characters wherever they are needed becomes trivial and very handy.

In many simple situations -- when setting legends in graphics, writing some help pages or some other documentation, etc, using ready-to-read special characters instead of not-rendered raw LaTeX technical expressions is enough and helpful.

Character sets provided by %chars must not be considered as fixed and definitive. The number of sets, their names, hierarchy, and order can vary in the future, as well as the order of characters in the sets. In addition, a given character may belong to several sets.
The full display of all %chars contents in the console may require tuning the General:Environment/Containers display depth parameter in the Preferences.
