|Summary||0000366: Unicode minus sign (U+2212) not accepted by Jessie, yet used in documentation, causing mysterious failure|
|Description||The Jessie tutorial:
includes many examples, but cutting and pasting from them
produces mysterious, hard-to-understand failures.
The problem is that the HTML (and probably PDF) uses Unicode U+2212
("Minus sign") as the subtraction operator;
You can see this by searching for "−" in the HTML.
Frama-C/Jessie does not accept this; they
expect U+002D ("hyphen-minus") instead.
I recommend that Frama-C/Jessie be changed so that U+2122 is
permitted as an alternative to "-", just as many other
Unicode characters are already accepted.
In addition, the documentation should perhaps be changed to use "-"
so that it will work with older systems
that do not cut-and-paste this character correctly.
On my system, the difference is a pixel or two, and is thus
difference is rather hard to detect.
