# How to find slot of a character

Following this "manual": Importing a Single Symbol From a Different Font I try to extract the \rightsquigarrow character from the standard ams package, since I'm overwriting it with mathds. But I don't know how to find the slot number. Trial and error might take too long. Is there a file I can look it up in?

• Hmmm, to me it seems, dsfont (which provides \mathds) does not overwrite \rightsquigarrow. – moewe Aug 29 '13 at 8:25
• Oh then I guess its the mathabx package. – Dima McGreen Aug 29 '13 at 8:32

You can look it up in amssymb.sty. \rightsquigarrowis defined as:
\DeclareMathSymbol{\rightsquigarrow}  {\mathrel}{AMSa}{"20}

In general the *.sty files for the fonts are a good starting point to find out the slot of defined symbols.
