Typing the "⎮" (integral extension) character

Simple (or maybe not) question. How do I type the "⎮" (=integral extension) character on my MacBook? I tried multiple combinations of alt, cmd, etc but none of them worked.

Yes, that one. I don't have the \ placed on my keyboard, I need to press alt+shift+7 for typing it.

Maybe it's because it's a Danish keyboard layout? I don't know. It's going to be a hell to do programming if I can't type it.

It depends on if you are using the US(International) layout, or the Dutch Layout (as both are common).

On the Dutch Layout, it is Shift + * as indicated here: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi..._als_paden.svg

On the US international keyboard it is on the key between Return and Delete.

However, based on your responses, it almost sounds like you have a German Keyboard, if you have a key that has < and > on it, it is the Alt/Option character on that key.

The Wiki page on keyboards might help if you still can't find it...

No problem.

If you go:

System Preferences ---> International---> Input Menu

Select Keyboard Viewer.

This then gives you a tool that you can access from the menu under the Flag in your Menu Bar. You can then find all the characters.

My mind is a bit of a sponge, where I usually absorb all knowledge I'm exposed to (except in school or with advanced math) or I just know how to use Google to its full potential.

Plus, I'm a little better than Data in that I understand the basics of decorum and the meaning of idioms and turns of phrase.
