Hi folks,


My goal is to convert a character (for exaple 'A') to the decimal ascii value ( = 65).

Im aware that I have to use  Character.digit('A',int radius);  But my question is: what does the radius value have to be to get 65 returned? I tried 10 (decimal) but I get always -1 returned.


And yes, I googled. But nothing.

Re: Character.digit()

much easier to cast it to int, it is a char, after all.
(int)'A' is 65, for example.

Re: Character.digit()

I would ignore the previous post, it is not possible for a cast to throw a NumberFormatException.
