I'm working currently on document that use many strange symbols (result of encryption). I need to print them somehow to PDF file without spending too much effort. Is there any package for this?

!Package inputenc Error: Unicode char \u8:�\expandafter not set up for use wit
h LaTeX.

And this is text that I'm trying to print:

Z‰~xŹz€B…z‰~xŹz€A5xŹz‡Ś„Ž5‰„~xŹz€A"V5v5‰Ž‚5‰„~xŹ€Š5… zx~„Ž5€„ŹŽxŹz€A"l5€„ŹŽxŹ€Š5vwČŠŹ€„A5Ś5vwČŠŹ€Š5‡„wvxŹz€A"V5v5‰Ž‚5‡„wvxŹ€Š5Ź~z„Ž5€‌​Šw‡vxŹz€C

Here is my MWE:

Z‰~xŹz€B…z‰~xŹz€A5xŹz‡Ś„Ž5‰„~xŹz€A"V5v5‰Ž‚5‰„~xŹ€Š5… zx~„Ž5€„ŹŽxŹz€A"l5€„ŹŽxŹ€Š5vwČŠŹ€„A5Ś5vwČŠŹ€Š5‡„wvxŹz€A"V5v5‰Ž‚5‡„wvxŹ€Š5Ź~z„Ž5€‌​Šw‡vxŹz€C

    Welcome to TeX.SX! Please help us to help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. – user31729 Dec 20 '14 at 15:31

    I'm assuming you're using utf8 for inputenc and a UTF8 encoded file. You can try using XeLaTeX or LuaLaTeX instead (and remove inputenc). But if the symbols are obscure enough, you'd have to tell TeX about them and, of course, pick a font which provides them. – cfr Dec 20 '14 at 15:36
  • Update. I've added short version of my document. – Tom Dec 20 '14 at 15:52
  • XeLaTeX and LuaLaTeX not working – Tom Dec 20 '14 at 16:45

It can be done with xelatex or lualatex, provided you load the fontenc package. You can't put all those strange characters, however, inside a lstlisting.

They are printed fine, for example, in a verbatim environment.

MWE (I've reduced the size to \scriptsize and increased the width of the page to let it fit in the line)

Z‰~xŹz€B…z‰~xŹz€A5xŹz‡Ś„Ž5‰„~xŹz€A"V5v5‰Ž‚5‰„~xŹ€Š5… zx~„Ž5€„ŹŽxŹz€A"l5€„ŹŽxŹ€Š5vwČŠŹ€„A5Ś5vwČŠŹ€Š5‡„wvxŹz€A"V5v5‰Ž‚5‡„wvxŹ€Š5Ź~z„Ž5€‌​Šw‡vxŹz€C

Output (zoomed in)

  • Thanks, it work's pretty well for this text, yet some symbols (like hearths, TM, etc) doesn't – Tom Dec 20 '14 at 18:21
  • @Tom Happy it helped. – karlkoeller Dec 20 '14 at 18:24
  • And is there any way to print any possible character? (the most custom and unusuall ones) – Tom Dec 20 '14 at 18:27
  • @Tom Have you tried them outside verbatim? – karlkoeller Dec 20 '14 at 18:47
