Named Constants

Named constants allow you to use a descriptive name for a character, instead of its code. To define a named constant, use store(name) code. When you wish to refer to the code, use $name.

The dollar referencing can only be used with named constants. You cannot use it for stores that have more than one character in them, or for keys or other non-character stores. Named constants are supported for characters above plane 0.

Named constants can also be loaded from a file with the store(&includecodes) statement. For instance, the Unicode Character Names can be used by referencing unicodedata.txt.

Example
store(CCedilla) U+00E7
+ [RALT K_C] > $CCedilla
