Arnold can't get + symbol from keyboard
« on: 23:09, 09 March 14 »
I'm trying to type in a simple BASIC program in Arnold on Linux (Arch Linux, Arnold TNG via AUR AUR (en) - arnold ) but am stumped trying to find which key to press to obtain the + (add/plus) symbol.

After experimenting on my UK keyboard I thought I'd look in the Arnold source and try and map one of the apparently unused keys to provide a + symbol but my initial investigations so far suggest the plus key isn't catered for - I find references to CPC_KEY_MINUS but nothing for its converse +, no CPC_KEY_PLUS, no CPC_KEY_ADD.

Only workaround so far is to
Code: [Select]
print chr$(43) and to copy it in.
