Curses - how can I print the VT100 symbols such as ACS_DIAMOND and ACS_BULLET

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

I am writing a application using the Curses module, and it's all
working nicely but I would like to be able to print some of the VT100
symbols such as ACS_DIAMOND and ACS_BULLET  (as defined in /usr/
include/curses.h) to the screen, can anyone help.  Example of the code
I have tried is:

use strict;
use warnings;
use Readonly;

use Curses;

Readonly my $NULL => q{};

addstr(2, 2,"string ");
addstr(2, 9, ACS_DIAMOND);



But all it does is print a number    'string 4194400', thanks
