    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.

    Shift and \

    Or am I missing something?

    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/wikiped...dse_toetsenbordindeling_-_tekst_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.

    Use the Keyboard Viewer and press the Cmnd, Shift, etc. until you see what you want.

    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.
