HI All
Is there any method in java which return value from ASCII.

Failures are practice shoots for success.

I'm not quite getting the question. Can you show me what you'd expect such a method to do? What would you like to provide as input and get as output?

A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi

Java uses Unicode and not ASCII. but the ASCII character set forms the first 255 characters of Unicode, so all the ASCII values remain unchanged.

You can do a simple typecast to get the value.

int a = 65;
char ch = (char)a;

will assign 'A' to ch.
I agree. Here's the link:
