    Int...Char!

    How do I write a program that you enter a number and it returns a letter?

    Example:
    Enter 1 and it returns a.
    Enter 123 and it returns abc.


    Kind of like a secret code. I thought I knew how to do this but I guess a didn't . I don't have any code .

    Needing Help,
    SirCrono6


    PHP Code:
    #include <iostream>
    using std::cin;
    using std::cout;
    using std::endl;
    int main(int argc,char *argv[])
    {
      
    cout<<"Ohhh! PHP!"<<endl;
      
    system("PAUSE"); //So!
      
    return 0;

    From C to shining C++!

    Great graphics, sounds, algorithms, AI, pathfinding, visual effects, cutscenes, etc., etc. do NOT make a good game.

    try this:
    Code:
    cout<<static_cast<char>(yourint);
    and use this chart to modify that to your needs/wants

    btw, what was with the PHP thing?

    Code:
    static_cast<char>(yourint + 'a' - 1);
    The word rap as it applies to music is the result of a peculiar phonological rule which has stripped the word of its initial voiceless velar stop.
