C++ program to find character ASCII value

C++ program to find character ASCII value

In this C++ program tutorial our task is to:

  •  Write a C++ program to find the ASCII value of the given character.

C++ program to find the ASCII value of the given character

Given below is the C++ program in which a user input of char data type is accepted and then it is type casted to int data type and the following ASCII code is obtained.

#include<iostream>
using namespace std;
int main()
{
    char s;
    cout<<"Enter a character"<<endl;
    cin>>s;
    cout<<"The ASCII value of the given character is"<<endl;
    cout<<int(s);       //Type casted from char data type to int data type.
    return 0;
}

OUTPUT :

Enter a character

a

The ASCII value of the given character is

97

 

EXPLANATION:

  • In the above code the compilation starts from the main function (here int main()) .
  • Then it takes a character as a input .
  • By typecasting the char data type to int data type.
  • When we change a character to its integer format then the ASCII value of the corresponding character gets printed out.

You can see the above code execution and output in codeblocks IDE:
