    Hello,

    I'm trying to print non-ascii symbols on a file, using

    fprintf(file_name, "%c", xxx), where xxx is the symbol number

    I'm trying to print symbols 176, 177, 178 and 219 from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Code_page_850.

    When I use printf only, the result is perfect. When I use fprintf, however, I get a different output. Is there any different thing to be done?

    I'm using Dev-cpp and I'm opening files with Window's Notepad, font Lucida Console.

    Thanks in advance

    How you are seeing the output of fprintf is not correct. It may be that you file viewer is doing some tricks.

    I'm getting this:

    Code:
    ±    ²² ÛÛ
    ±±±   ² Û 
     ±  °     
      °°°°°°  
        °°  ±±
      ²    ±±±
      ²²²   ±±
    Û ²²²²   ±
    Û     °°  
    Û     °   
    
    while it should be showing the following characters:
    Code:
    ░ ▒ ▓ █

    There is wrong somewhere else because the no of characters cannot change between fprintf and printf.
