degree char using GLUT


I used to get a degree character with \xb0,
but no longer (I upgraded…). Does anyone know how to get a degree character with glutBitmapCharacter()?


Have you tried printing the char on your source with Alt+0176? Maybe including that in single quotes could do the job. Or try giving the char in decimal.

I tried a couple of things, and it turns out that
the glut-lib I use only shows the 7-bit ascii
series. Does someone know a (dirty) trick to make
a degree-sign? (I have a deadline)
