Don't know what bc command is, but: Using pclos I can print a ^ without
any tricks, and having set a compose key,
I can type hôtel, for instance, in the terminal. I just tried it. I
would be surprised if your Ubuntu machine won't do
that. (I have US keyboard with the compose key set up for the right
CTRL key. If you have a k/b with Microsoft keys,
you could make the right M/S key your control key--it's not good for
anything else.) Generally speaking, any character
I can print in KWrite, or LibreOffice or Thunderbird mail, I can print
in the terminal. And most mail readers can reproduce
the foreign characters OK too. I'm sure you can set up a compose key in
Ubuntu--I have probably done it myself in
the past, when I was messing with Ubuntu. That distro has superb
documentation, so look it up. I've never seen a
command that used a foreign character, but I believe that some
complicated bash commands use the ^ by itself,
so you shouldn't even need a compose key for that.
Blessed are the peacekeepers...for they shall be shot at from both sides. --A.M. Greeley
