How to render a ^ (carrot) in normal LaTeX text

Here are two ways to render a ^ (carrotcaret) in plain text within LaTeX:

\documentclass{article} 
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc} 
\begin{document} 
A caret: \verb|^| 
\end{document}
\textasciicircum

I tested them and both work as prescribed. They produce different carrotscarets.

(via comp.lang.texcomp.text.tex)

  1. Hi Sean. Thanks for your graciousness.

    I did mean caret; I am not sure why I wrote carrot! :)
