Named constants allow you to use a descriptive name for a character, instead of
its code. To define a named constant, use
store(charname) charcode. When you
wish to refer to the code, use either
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 all Unicode characters including BMP and SMP (above plane 0).
Named constants can also be loaded from a file with the
store. For instance, the Unicode Character Names can
be used by referencing unicodedata.txt. The format of this file is documented in
Hangeul syllables are predefined named constants, with the following pattern:
initialcan be G, GG, N, D, DD, R, M, B, BB, S, SS, J, JJ, C, K, T, P, H, or empty
vowelcan be A, AE, YA, YAE, EO, E, YEO, YE, O, WA, WAE, OE, YO, U, WEO, WE, WI, YU, EU, YI, or I
finalcan be G, GG, GS, N, NJ, NH, D, L, LG, LM, LB, LS, LT, LP, LH, M, B, BS, S, SS, NG, J, C, K, T, P, H, or empty
This follows the algorithm documented on Wikipedia.

- Named constants were introduced in Keyman 6.0.
- Hangul syllables were improved in Keyman 14.0 and documented in Keyman 15.0
