Named code constants
Keyman 6.0 adds support for single-character stores, or constants, with user-defined names. You can assign a name to a character with a store, and use the name later (prefixed with a $ sign) in place of the character.
store( g_circumflex ) U+011D c Define the constant ... "g" + "^" > $g_circumflex c Use the constant
Note that only stores containing a single character can be used in this way.
Keyman 6.0 also predefines the Unicode character names as constants. While these are often too long to be practical, they can be conveniently used instead of the code when defining your own constants.
store( g_circumflex ) $LATIN_SMALL_LETTER_G_WITH_CIRCUMFLEX
