    Passing integers to escape values

    Hi Everyone,

    I'm trying to print out an ascending set of letters. The number depends on an input from the user so if the user said the number of inputs was 5 the program would print out:

    A B C D E.

    I thought i could do it like this:

    Code:
    for (x = 101;  x < input_from_user; x++)
    {
    printf("\%d", x);
    }
    Because \101 is ascii for A so i thought i could increment that in a for loop but i can't pass the value of 'x' to be escaped. It goes in ok but it prints out :

    Code:
    101 102 103 104 105
    Is there a way of doing this? Am i going about it the wrong way?

    Any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks
