I dunno:

This code:

/* REXX */
Say "Start"
Say "{ $ } [ ]"
Say "End"

Gave me this result:

Start
{ $ } [ ]
End

i tried running the same code with all the special characters. the code is given below:


/* REXX */
SAY "START"
SAY "!~`@#% &*()_+;'.,/?: {}?\"
SAY "END"

This is waht i got as output:


START
!::@#%:::&*()_+;'.,/?::::icon_question.gif
END
***

No idea how Superk got the desired results. It might be a system setting. [/b]
