Topic: Can't use special symbols on the Arduino IDE (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic

Hi guys, this is probably a silly problem, but I've looked around and I can't figure it out. I simply can't use symbols like:  " " ; ' '; ~ ;  in the IDE. But outside the IDE they work just fine!

Does anyone knows any solution?

I'm using Arduino 1.0 and my OS is Linux Mint 9.


Thks!

I have the same issue on linux, at least with the 'tilde'.

Writing something like

Code: [Select]
PORTB &= ~_BV(PB5);

just doesn't work. The 'tilde' is ignored, so I have to copy it over from another editor.

That's exactly what happens to me the "tilde" and "quotes" are ignored. I also have to copy from another editor.


Does anyone knows?


thks.
