It is legal to assign a number literal (octal ,decimal ,hexdecimal)
(0-65535) to char.Isn't it? so what are they take as their character?
Is it unicode number?
If char=017; char=17; char=ox11;
Are a,b,c take same character?

Hi ,
Yes you can assign a number to char .
char c = 97;
since 97 is ascii value of a , when you print it with SOP it will print a .
try it .
