I am a begginner at programming in c++ and I would like to know if there is a way you can change the output of boolean variables to low level graphics in the terminal (linux). To Display for example a small circle for true and a small square for false.
I am needing to display an array of booleans in terms of small symbols such as the example above as the output for a project, any suggestions on the best way to impliment this function if what I have asked is not possible?
You can print unicode Symbols using
"\u2605" will print a star.
So you can write something like
std::wcout<< (myBool) ? "\u2605" : "\u25CF" <<std::endl;
This will print a star if
true or a circle if
You can find many tables of Unicode characters online, e.g. here: http://jrgraphix.net/r/Unicode/
