Python Program to print ASCII Value of a character

ASCII abbreviated from American Standard Code for Information Interchange, is a character encoding standard for electronic communication.

Just to understand in simple language, it is a value given to different characters and symbols. For example, the ASCII value of alphabet A is 65.

The task here is to print the ASCII value of the provided character.

Python provides two inbuilt methods to get ASCII value from character and character from ASCII value.

ord(c)For a given Unicode character(provided as String), return an integer representing the Unicode code point of that character.
chr(i)Return the string representing a character whose Unicode code point is the integer i. For example, chr(65) returns the string ‘A’.
# Character for which ASCII value to be retrieved 
character = 'A'
print('ASCII value of character is ',ord(character))


ASCII value of character is  65

Python program to get character value from ASCII value

#ASCII value for which character to be retrieved
ascii = 65
print('ASCII value of ASCII value is ',chr(ascii))


ASCII value of ASCII value is  A
