    int to char?

    Hi there

    I have a variable of type char[10] where i will always store a Character in char[0], however char [1] will always be a number between 0 and 9.

    therefore Z9 is one possibility of how this can occur... Apart the letter part I solved it... however im filling char[1] with junk for some reason i dont know :S

    i was trying

    Code:
      num = 7; 
      var[1] =(char)num;
    when this happened :S any suggestions? btw i dont want to use sprintf

    if you want a character represnetation of the number like '7' instead of just number 7 use
    int num = 7;
    var[1] = '0' + num;
    All problems in computer science can be solved by another level of indirection,
    except for the problem of too many layers of indirection.

    The character '7' is not represented as 7 in ASCII.

    EDIT: Too late.

    Can't you use a struct?

    Code:
    struct var{
         char[9];
         int;
    };

    Actually - this struct is possible to use somewhere... But what it has to do with the OP's problem?
