    converting ints to chars

    I have 255 integer values ranging from 0 to 255

    i have char message[255]

    i want to convert each of these integers into there ascii letter and then put them into the message

    eg:

    message[0] = ascii version of first int
    message[1] = ascii version of second int

    and so on

    any help would be greatly appriciated

    Not all ASCII characters have a symbol.
    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    int main()
    {
        int i;
        for(i=0; i<256; i++) putchar(i);
        getchar();
    }

    ASCII is only defined from 0 to 127.

    I think there's no real standard for number from 128 to 255. It will print different symbol depending on the computer you are using.

    In fact, you aren't converting anything. Someone could explain better than me, but ASCII is a just a convention who says, for example, that if you have the binary pattern "0100000" and want it expressed as a character on the screen, than it must print the character "A". And so on.
