Double-width fonts?

Postby mt12345 » 2018-03-07 23:38

Code: Select all
$ ls -hl
total 4.0K
drwxr-xr-x 2 max max 4.0K Mar  7 23:49 NO SLEEP/
-rwxrwxrwx 1 max max    0 Mar  7 23:43 morning.mp3*
-rwxrwxrwx 1 max max    0 Mar  7 23:43 suicide.mp3*
-rwxrwxrwx 1 max max    0 Mar  7 23:43 suicide.mp3*
-rwxrwxrwx 1 max max    0 Mar  7 23:43 unicorn.mp3*

How do I get such wide fonts? There are no white spaces, both 'suicide' files have 7 characters in their names. But there can't be 2 files with the same name in the same folder. Wide-font suicide is highlighted as misspelled when pasted in editors which indicates that signs s,u,i,c,i,d,e are not regular alphabet letters but from the other side the word is recognised by google translate. WTF?

* Im not sure if you can see the code above, it might depend on the fonts in your web browser.
** NO SLEEP folder - wide fonts too.

By converting the characters from your above post to Unicode at , it shows they are different Unicode characters. I'll leave it up to you to search for a further explanation.
