as x86 asm uses the dollar sign $ to denote end of string Surprised

I was wondering what was the best way to achieve a dollar
sign in a string,

eg how would I represent the string:

'this computer cost me $10' Razz

?

is there a better way than:

Code:
msg  db  'this computer cost me $'
        db  24h
        db  '10$'

if you are using dos function 9h - noway Wink (maybe buy with roubles Smile )
you have to use another function if you have to output some symbols like this, possible written by yourself, which will use single simbol output in the body

regards!

lazer: use the "write file" DOS API to write to the stdout handle, instead of using the 9h "print string" thing.

FYI, here's a quick reference for it: http://www.ctyme.com/intr/rb-2791.htm

P.S. STDOUT = 1, so use that in BX.

one asm tutorial I tried said $ is in fact not a dollar sign but a peso,

the guy said that the dollar has 2 vertical lines,

so I really meant the computer cost 10 pesos! Laughing

old soviet computers had "¤" sign instead of "$". first computer game i saw was spacewar, were flying plates bombed with cyrillic letter 'F' - 'Ф', and you were killing them with "!" from "¤=!=¤", moving it on the bottom of the screen Very Happy
