Use of special character like @ in irb

The version I use is 0.9.5. I want to code @ name = name(for example)
but I cannot print the @. I I know that there is an option in the
command line but I do not find it.
Thanks for your help

I think your question has confused me however all you need to do to
enter an
@ sign in irb is hold shift and press ‘2’. You can’t have a space
between
the @ and the rest of the token though.

C:>irb --version
irb 0.9.5(05/04/13)

C:>irb
irb(main):001:0> @name = “dejan”
=> “dejan”
irb(main):002:0> p @name
“dejan”
=> nil
irb(main):003:0> def name
irb(main):004:1> “dejan”
irb(main):005:1> end
=> nil
irb(main):006:0> @name = name
=> “dejan”
irb(main):007:0> p @name
“dejan”
=> nil
irb(main):008:0> exit

We obviously miss something in question?
Very puzzling!?

There was a thread about this a little while ago. Unfortunately, I
don’t remember what the outcome was. A little search might turn it up!

Good point. I was thinking the numbers were fairly standard. I still
think
the language barrier popped up in the entirety of the question it’s self
before I started being Ameri-centric.

This assumes that every keyboard has an @ above the 2, which is not the
case. The original poster seems to be French. Here’s one example of a
french keyboard layout:

Thanks for your information.As a matter of fact I have a swiss
keyboard. On the third key I have " (2nd level), 2 and @ on the first
level.I use Scite to write my programs and the @ character is
acessible.When I switch to irb (in the shell) when I strike on @
nothing happens.It seems that inside irb I should change the keyboard
layout ?

Can you get the @ sign in the shell you launch irb from?

It sounds like your keyboard is mapped differently on the console than
it is
in your GUI, which is what I expected. I think irb should use the same
keyboard mapping as your console/shell/terminal since that is what
launches
the irb process. The best advice I can give is to try and figure out
how to
change the mapping on your terminal/console. I would think that if you
can
get an @ sign there you will be able to get it in irb.
