NewBie's Corner Session 18 Caché or Cache

NewBie's Corner Session 18 Caché or Cache

Welcome to NewBie's Corner, a weekly or biweekly post covering basic Caché Material.

Caché and Cache

Caché and Cache are not the same. Caché is a product offered by InterSystems. Whereas Cache refers to memory storage.
In computing, a cache /ˈkæʃ/ KASH, is a hardware or software component that stores data so future requests for that data can be served faster; the data stored in a cache might be the result of an earlier computation, or the duplicate of data stored elsewhere.

Spelled properly, Caché should have the acute accent (´ ) above the "e". 
Caché is pronounced cash–shay or cash-ā, emphasis on the second syllable.

Write the word "Caché" with Cut and Paste
You could find the word Caché on the InterSystems website. Then double–click the word Caché to select it, next, right click the word Caché and copy it into your paste buffer. From there you can paste it whenever you need it.

Write the word Caché in Terminal
You could use Caché's Terminal with:
    Write "Cash"_$Char(233)

Write the word "Caché" in Microsoft Word
Or, if you are using Microsoft Word, in the Ribbon at the top of the page, select Insert. At the far right click on Symbols or More Symbols. You will find the é under Font:(normal text) and Sublet:Latin–1 Supplement.

In Microsoft Word, you can get Caché inserted automatically every time you type Cache. In the File Menu, under Options and then Proofing, select the AutoCorrect Options and add an item whereby every time you type Cache it will be replaced with Caché. It will help to have Caché in your copy buffer (so you can just paste it in) before you start. Be sure you have the correct accent. Not the grave accent (à è ì ò ù), but the acute accent (á é í ó ú).
