Pretty much just what the title says.

I need to get the square root symbol alone, without the parenthesis, to use in a string. The root command won't work because that includes the parenthesis, the percent symbol trick gives me no √. It gives me ?super glitchy token occupying a whole line of blank things that also glitches the tokens that come afterB6Boxplotsinh⁻(%

After deleting the buggy token, i get a clean ?B6Boxplotsinh⁻(%; but no √.

I do not know how to manually add tokens and cannot write an assembly program to do it for me.

How do I get the symbol?
Kerm may have an ASM program in the archives to do that, also, what calc?
there is one for the 84+ CE, but idk about the others...
There are a couple of ways to do this, just wondering what calc this is for specifically?

Also if the requirement is to display it on screen or do you 100% need to token in the string?

Without knowing which platform and if you only need to display it on screen:

Output(1,1,"√("
Output(1,2," "

And it will only show the √ by itself on the screen - you cant copy this to a string however since it is just graphical. Other display commands should work the same way.

TI 84+ (silver edition, not that it matters)
There is a token for just the square root symbol. In sourcecoder, writing "squareroot" will be converted to that token. Kerm has a program that you can use to store some hard to reach tokens to a string for use in your programs (including the squareroot token). Here is a link to that.
Alternatively you can find the symbol in this program: http://tr1p1ea.net/files/downloads/SQRTSYM.8xp

You can then recall it into your program by pressing 2nd+Sto, then going to EXEC and selecting the program. Delete the output stuff and you will have the symbol on its own.
