MSymbol msymbol (const char * name)
Get a symbol. The msymbol() function returns the canonical symbol whose name is name. If there is none, one is created. The created one is not a managing key. Symbols whose name starts by two spaces are reserved by the m17n library, and are used by the library only internally.
This function returns the found or created symbol.
This function never fails.
