Writing Math symbols in WinXP machine - How?

Discussion in 'Ruby' started by RichardOnRails, Apr 24, 2008.

  1. Hi,

    I found a .NET site that Pi is Unicode-16 0x03A0) & Sigma is 0xH03A3.
    I'd like to use them in a Ruby program generating Windows output
    (an .rbx program). This site contains a lot of what I'd like:
    http://www.astro.umd.edu/~kimwt/greek.html#s0370.

    How can I use them with Ruby. Would I have to use .rbw so as to
    produce out in a regular window rather than a Command Window? Would
    using Rails simplify their use?

    I searched Web (which led to the reference above) and mvp.org (with no
    obvious relevance).

    Any suggestions, urls. etc?

    Thanks in Advance,
    Richard
