digitalmars.D - when compiling: unsupported char 0xc2

Got a "little" problem with source code and the characters/letters used 
in it...  And would like to know how to rectify this:

I'm usually using 'vim' (or 'gvim') for editing source codes, but now as 
learning D as new language, came against a problem with '|' (the vertical 
bar) in source code.  Whenever dmd encounters a '|' in code (outside 
string literals), it errors out with i.e.:

    ...somesource.d(84): unsupported char 0xc2

So, for now, have had to put i.e. "if (a == 2 || b == 3)" to separate if/
else's.

The '|' char is 124, not 0xc2 (that is 194 in decimal). I have no problems using the vertical bar in my D source code. You probably are doing something wrong, if you take a look at this post you can see your editor is using something past 7-bit ASCII, try a different editor. Bye, bearophile

a hexedit, I think it's not just editor issue... there's an invisible "0xC2" character following the 2nd '|' in my own post and the source code... Not a D, issue. Heh, sry - should've thought checking the hexdump earlier.

check the encoding vim uses D accepts either ascii (<=127) or unicode. :set encoding=utf-8

Ah! Thanks, that fixed it.
