REXX predates Unicode, I think, or at least its widespread adoption,
but it has a non-ASCII operator:
But personally, I've always used backslash. It's nothing to do with
ASCII and everything to do with having it on the keyboard. Before you
get a language that uses full Unicode, you'll need to have fairly
generally available keyboards that have those keys.
