NSString literals with unicode chars - Mac Programming

i want to make some NSString literals that contain unicode characters. for example, the ellipsis character. a little googling seems to indicate that people try "\u2026" but it doesn't work. \x didn't work, either. is there any way to do this? i'd like to avoid directly typing an ellipsis into a source file, because that seems a little dangerous and susceptible to misinterpretation. i'd rather keep my source files in plain ascii....

    Default NSString literals with unicode chars

    for example, the ellipsis character. a little googling seems to
    indicate that people try "\u2026" but it doesn't work. \x didn't work,
    either. is there any way to do this?

    I don't know which sign you mean, but try "\302\260".
    You can get the octal code when you type the sign you want into a terminal.

    Sorry - I forgot - you have to use it this way

    const char * bytes = "\302\260";
    [NSString stringWithUTF8String:bytes];
