I hope you can help. I want to find the Chinese character for Water. What character page do I go to in the Chars menu to find it? Thanks,

Eddie

Google Translate gives me "水" in Chinese (Simplified).

Using the Unicode Character Search for that character I'm told:

"Are you looking for Unicode character U+6C34: water, liquid, lotion, juice?"

My trusty HP-16C tells me that 6C34 h is 27700 d.

And there it is under "CJK Uni. Ideographs":

   

Getting to it requires scrolling down several hundred pages.

Luckily there is the CHAR command:

Code:
EXPORT water()
BEGIN
PRINT("Water is: "+CHAR(27700));
END;

RE: Chinese Characters
Until you posted in eried's old thread, I didn't realize that the Prime had a Pinyin entry method. Pinyin for 水 is shui. Entering that while in the Characters app take us to:

   

I assume the 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 options are for different sets of ideographs. It looks like 3 is Chinese (Simplified):

   

Very cool! Thanks eried and Eddie.
