    decimal ascII character

    hello.
    i know i can use printf( "\xHH" ); to print an ascII character, in HH hex number.
    But, how can i do it using a number in decimal format? something like that: printf( "\DDD" ); and DDD is a decimal number.

    Regards
    Thanks

    You can't. You can do it in octal, but not in decimal. Just convert the decimal to hexadecimal in your head and use the \x notation.

    decimal ascII character
    And don't copy/paste the same question over many forums / threads.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
