    Thumbs up number to a character

    how do I enter a number and return the numer that represents ASCII value.

    Such as
    "Please enter a number less than 255
    The character that represents ASCII value 65 is A"

  2. #2
    int x;
    scanf( "%d", &x );
    printf("%d is %c.", x, (char)x );

    You don't acutally _have to_ cast it to a char there either...


  3. #3
    declare a char type variable to print out the ASCII value. Then use the char the same way you would use an int.

    #include <stdio.h>
    int main(){
      char c;
      printf("Please enter a number from 0 to 256");
      scanf("%c", &c);
      printf("The ASCII value is %c", c);
      return 0;
