How to get the ASCII value of a character


From here:

The function ord() gets the int valueof the char. And in case you want toconvert back after playing with thenumber, function chr() does the trick.

>>> ord('a')97>>> chr(97)'a'>>> chr(ord('a') + 3)'d'>>>

In Python 2, there was also the unichr function, returning the Unicode character whose ordinal is the unichr argument:

>>> unichr(97)u'a'>>> unichr(1234)u'\u04d2'

In Python 3 you can use chr instead of unichr.


ord() - Python 3.6.5rc1 documentation

ord() - Python 2.7.14 documentation


Note that ord() doesn't give you the ASCII value per se; it gives you the numeric value of the character in whatever encoding it's in. Therefore the result of ord('ä') can be 228 if you're using Latin-1, or it can raise a TypeError if you're using UTF-8. It can even return the Unicode codepoint instead if you pass it a unicode:

>>> ord(u'あ')12354
