Extended ASCII set.


Anyone know a place where I can get the linux ASCII set list?

Reason I need it is I would like to use the drawing characters but i seam to be unable to locate them with the simple program that i wrote for the task ??

Code:
#include <stdio.h> 

unsigned char x; 

main()
{  
     puts ("The Extended ASCII set");
     for (x = 128 ; x != 255 ; x++)
             printf("%d is %c. ",x,x); 

   

   puts (""); 
}

The are from 179 (0xb3) to 218 (0xda). But...the characters can be used for local characters in different systems. Your system may also use Unicode. Then the character table looks completely different.

If you want to draw lines etc and make it portable check ncurses library.
