    eclipse and c++ misrepresentation of characters


    Hi there, I just started using eclipse. Ie, I followed all the instructions to set up C++ and run a simple hello world program.
    However, I seem to have hit a snag.
    When I build the solution I get an error. I realized where there should be a > there is a | instead. Every time I type > the | prints instead and I have no idea how to fix this.
    Any suggestions would be great!

    Thank you.

    How is your keyboard configured for the X server? My guess is that the key mappings are incorrect for your system. Do you get the same problem if you are typing in OpenOffice, or on the command line, for example? If not, then perhaps it is a configuration error in Eclipse.

    Thank you for your reply. The key mappings were correct. We tried everything from copy pasting the symbol from else where to changing a bunch of settings. Turns out it was the font. Go figure.

    From now on whenever I select a font I am checking to make sure the symbols display correctly.

    I'm just glad it wasn't anything else, and it is now up and running.

    Thanks again.

    Yeah. Must have been a cousin to the "Gobbledygook" font - whatever you type, something else (random) is displayed!
