Stray '\304' in Program Error

Hello, I tried to verify my code in Arduino IDE but I keep getting the same error:

Arduino: 1.8.9 (Windows 10), Board: "Arduino/Genuino Uno"

knight_rider:6:1: error: stray '\304' in program

 int butonSayı = 0;

     butonSayı = butonSayı + 1;

     ^

Use the IDE search option, "ctrlF" to find the culprit.

Use the IDE search option, "ctrlF" to find the culprit.

Umm.. Thanks for that but I don't know what causes the error. Maybe I didn't understand you right because I'm new to Arduino and C++. If you could clarify it a bit I would be happy.

Did you happen to copy your code from a internet page and paste it into the Arduio IDE?

Put some dots on your 'ı's.

int butonSayı = 0;
^           ^
ok          not ok

You cut and pasted some code that you didn’t show us.

No, I didn't copy pasted the code. I tried to write myself but I kept getting that error.

…but you still haven’t shown us the code.

We’re not psychic here

get rid of all your white space, the characters hidden in the white space are producing your errors.. Also, check that the end of each line does not have a space after the ";".

Seems as if a /304 is a Latin Capital Letter I With Dot Above

Idahowalker:
Also, check that the end of each line does not have a space after the “;”.

That’s a problem? :astonished:

It worked! I'm not a native English speaker so I couldn't think of that. Thank you very much.

Well.. Sorry I didn't know that I should do that.

TheMemberFormerlyKnownAsAWOL:

If there is a \304 or \261 after the ";" then it could be a problem.

erenzakeren:
Well… Sorry I didn’t know that I should do that.

If there’s a problem with your car, do you go to the garage and tell the mechanic “My car doesn’t work. I left the car at home, here is a picture of my car” ?

No, you take the car to the garage with you.

TheMemberFormerlyKnownAsAWOL:
sp. "\304 or \261"

Fixed my error.

I had the same error, instead of using Turkish character (ex: "ğ"), I used "g" and the problem was solved..
