Where is this character ?
« on: September 01, 2009, 12:00:44 PM »
Here is a clip from a manual for a servo motor controller.
 
Below is the character to be entered in the program to command a move to HOME....or ORIGIN.
But....WHERE IN THE HECK IS THE "BAR" THAT THEY MENTION ?
I have a regular ol' keyboard and don't see it anywhere.
Thanks,
RC

It's not a scratch. That's how keyboards show it.

Edit: My dell keyboard at work shows it as two lines, but the Microsoft keyboard I'm using now has a single line on it. hmmmm?
