(Redirected from \)
|Printable ASCII characters|
- The backslash \ character represents a throne.
- \ is also used for drawing rays (e.g. breath attacks and zapped wands).
- During the game, press \ to view your current knowledge about identified items.
- Note: With a french-canadian keyboard layout, pressing the backslash command won't work as result because it require a tricky manipulation that do not process right in the common windows terminal <Unknown command 'M-#'.> "(AltGr and the "~ '" key for \), also the Nhraykey.dll or subkeyvalue won't do it and there no patch about it either. To solve this you might change for a US layout and restart nethack or play on a linux tty(it handle the french-canadian layout correctly) or play on a graphical port.
- Pressing \ at a menu deselects all items on the current page. Supported by tty and curses interfaces, see menu controls.
Do not confuse the backslash \ with the forward slash /.
