Java Program to Find ASCII Value of a character

In this program, you’ll learn to find and display the ASCII value of a character in Java. This is done using type-casting and normal variable assignment operations.

 


Example: Find ASCII value of a character


public class AsciiValue{

    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);
    }
}

 

Output

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

In the above program, character a is stored in a char variable, ch. Like, double quotes (" ") are used to declare strings, we use single quotes (' ') to declare characters.

Now, to find the ASCII value of ch, we just assign ch to an int variable ascii. Internally, Java converts the character value to an ASCII value.

We can also cast the character ch to an integer using (int). In simple terms, casting is converting variable from one type to another, here char variable ch is converted to an int variable castAscii.

Finally, we print the ascii value using the println() function.

Two Machine Learning Fields

There are two sides to machine learning:

  • Practical Machine Learning:This is about querying databases, cleaning data, writing scripts to transform data and gluing algorithm and libraries together and writing custom code to squeeze reliable answers from data to satisfy difficult and ill defined questions. It’s the mess of reality.
  • Theoretical Machine Learning: This is about math and abstraction and idealized scenarios and limits and beauty and informing what is possible. It is a whole lot neater and cleaner and removed from the mess of reality.
