How to look up a math symbol?

I just could not find the command to write the symbol in Baby Rudin (Principles of Mathematical Analysis) for the set of bounded continuous functions on metric space X, for example on page 150 of its 1976 edition.

You mean the curly C? I think you want

\documentclass{minimal}
\usepackage{mathrsfs}
\begin{document}
\[
\mathscr{C}
\]
\end{document}

@Qiang - no problem. Incidentally, the best place to find symbols is in The Comprehensive LaTeX Symbol List. –  Ian Thompson Apr 16 '11 at 20:14

@Qiang, @Ian: I think that nowadays, I'd say that detexify is the best place to find symbols (but of course, it's built on top of the Comprehensive LaTeX Symbol List). –  Loop Space Apr 16 '11 at 20:47
