Java Program To Find ASCII Value Of Character

Chapter: Miscellaneous Last Updated: 25-08-2017 08:23:22 UTC

Program:

            /* ............... START ............... */
                
public class JavaASCIIValueCharacter {

	public static void main(String[] args) {

		char ch = 'a';
		int ascii = ch;
		// You can also cast char to int
		int castAscii = (int) ch;

		System.out.println("The ASCII value of " + ch + " is: " + ascii);
		System.out.println("The ASCII value of " + ch + " is: " + castAscii);
	}

}

                /* ............... END ............... */
        

Output

The ASCII value of a is: 97
The ASCII value of a is: 97

Notes:

  • ASCII abbreviated from American Standard Code for Information Interchange, is a character encoding standard for electronic communication. ASCII codes represent text in computers, telecommunications equipment, and other devices.
  • In the above program for ASCII value of ch, we assign ch to an int variable ascii. Internally, Java converts the character value to an ASCII value.
  • Casting converts from one type to another, here char variable ch is converted to an int variable castAscii.
