The Turkish lira was changed to an abbreviation of 'TL' in 2009 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turkish_lira#Second_Turkish_lira), but in FXComps it is still YTL (Currencies.as).

    Hello,

    Thanks for reporting this issue. According to this site (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turkish_lira)

    the current currency of Turkey is (ISO CODE): TRY
    sign or symbol: http://www.fileformat.info/info/unicode/char/20ba/index.htm (U+20BA)

    The currency symbol was TL until 1 March 2012.

    If I understand it well I must set the currency symbol to U+20BA.

    I will change the following line

    symbols[TRY] = "YTL";

    to this

    symbols[TRY] = "\u20ba";

    Do you agree with me?

    Regards,

    Laszlo

    I opened this ticket because one of our (Turkish) users reported it in our application. Also on wikipedia it says "In the transition period between January 2005 and December 2008, the second Turkish lira was officially called Yeni Türk Lirası (New Turkish lira).[5] It was officially abbreviated "YTL" and subdivided into 100 new kuruş (yeni kuruş). Starting in January 2009, the "new" marking was removed from the second Turkish lira, its official name becoming just "Turkish lira" again, abbreviated "TL"."

    So from that info it seems you only need to remove the Y from symbols[TRY] = "YTL", making it symbols[TRY] = "TL";

    I wonder where we could ask to make sure.

    So they use TL instead of U+20BA as a symbol. Can you contact your Turkish users to confirm it?

    If they use TL I change the code:

    symbols[TRY] = "TL";

    Confirm it and tomorrow I post a new version of FXCompsLib.

    Or I change the symbol to TL. I can fix it later if we are wrong. :)

    Tomorrow I post a new version. Contact me if I forget it.

    Thank you for your help,

    Laszlo

    Yep, just checked the original feedback ticket, and the Turkish user works for a Turkish advertising agency and clearly specified the currency code is now "TL" instead of "YTL".
    Thank you as well for being responsive.

    Laszlo, I've just downloaded v2.1.1 and, if I'm not mistaking, it seems that you reverted the changes at http://sourceforge.net/p/fxcomps/tickets/1/#bf78, and perhaps others? Was this intentional?
