### Syntax - `⁽`

- Two Character Base 250 Number Literal

Characters: `⁽`

The beginners' page has a more thorough explanation of Jelly syntax and tokenization.

##### Functionality

Begins a two character base-250 number literal.

##### Details

Each character is mapped to its index in Jelly's codepage, where `¡`

is `1`

and `ż`

is `250`

, and then the digits are evaluated in base 250. If the result is larger than `31500`

, subtract `62580`

; otherwise, add `750`

. This is to avoid wasting space representing numbers that can already be represented in three digits, or `1000`

, which can be represented by `ȷ`

(Exponential Number Literal). See the integer compression tool for more information and for a tool to automatically compress number literals. Also see `“`

(Begin String Literal).
