In a recent answer I needed to include a a possessive apostrophe in a path name within Time Machine for a command line operation. I have it saved in a text file, but what the heck is it? I don't see it on my keyboard.
"/Volumes/Seagate Backup Plus Drive/Backups.backupdb/david914’s MacBook Air/2015-08-30-221221/Macintosh HD/Users/david914/"
I first tried to look at it with python, but no luck.
These I know:
things = ["'", '"', "`"] names = ["single quote", "double quote", "backtick"] ascii = [ord(thing) for thing in things] for (a, b, c) in zip(things, ascii, names): print " " + a + " " + str(b) + " " + c ' 39 single quote " 34 double quote ` 96 backtick
but the apostrophe in question is: --> ’ <--
and all I can get is:
>>> ord("’") Unsupported characters in input
Then I used Excel:
Checking the opposite direction in Excel:
Back to python:
>>> chr(213) '\xd5'
Does this character appear normally on English MacBook Air keyboards? How else can I make them besides resorting to some kind of Office or Open Office product ?? What it is, anyway?
