I'm curious how I might be able to print greek letters and math symbols via JSL output. I'm writing a script and would like the output to be formated more elegantly. The Scripting Guide says that JMP has support for it, but provides no details on how to call the letters. I have tried passing Unicode characters (both HTML versions i.e. α and hexadecimal versions 03B1) and XML entries from SAS to no avail. I've been doing this inside quotations, i.e., "03B1 = 0.05" and outside, i.e., Concat(03B1," = 0.05"). Yet, no dice.
PS: I've been having a play with this: it looks as though most things work with anything found in the Windows Character Map, including tool tips, which will recognize line feeds and act on them. Some of the tools themselves ignore them in JMP 8, but recognize them in JMP 9:
style="font-size: 9pt; font-family: "Courier New"; color: green;">// The line feed doesn't show up on the chart or the various tools, but still works in the tool tips; style="font-size: 9pt; font-family: "Courier New"; color: black;">
I took the script you provided, modified it so it didn't display anything, made the table a static one inside the script and wrapped it all up as a function greek() which allows me to now source the script and use greek("alpha") or greek("Alpha"), etc... to get greek letters I want/need. I've credited both MattF and David Q/R in the comments on it - if neither of you have an issue with it, I'll post it to the file exchange as it might make someone's life easier.
The same goes from me: by all means put it on the File Exchange. It's a great place to find generally useful stuff: I've picked up any number of tips from examples that are posted there, including quite a few things I'd learned how to do and then subsequently forgotten!
