console, you need to switch to UTF-8 (code page 65001), then just
write out the UTF-8 bytes. Something like that, perhaps?

Let's pretend we're waaaay overthinking this.

Let's try this:

print ("-" .. " is a hyphen")
print ( ?? .. " is an n-dash")

Without more information, we can only guess at what platform or software you are using.

You need a UTF-8 aware editor, for starters, or you can use escaped character codes in strings.
