Hai all.I am new to this forum.I need all your help to improve my code which reads only a single character from the string to generate Unicode..Will it be fine if I use toCharArray()*??Please help me to work out this program as early as possible..
This is my coding..
public class A {
02 public static void getUnicode(String str_code) {
03 char h = 'h';
04 String hexStr = hexStr(h);
05 String binaryUnicode = "";
06
07 for (int i = 0; i < hexStr.length(); i+=2) {
08 String sub = hexStr.substring(i, i + 2);
09 int hexToInt = Integer.parseInt(sub, 16);
10 String intToBin = padBin(hexToInt);
11 binaryUnicode += intToBin;
12
13 System.out.printf("0x%s > %3d > %s\n", sub, hexToInt, intToBin);
14 }
15
16 System.out.printf("\nOUTPUT:\n");
17 System.out.printf("Char : %c\n", str_code.charAt(0));
18 System.out.printf("Unicode : \\u%s\n", hexStr);
19 System.out.printf("Binary : %s\n", binaryUnicode);
20 }
21
22 private static String hexStr(char ch) {
23 return String.format("%04x", (int) ch);
24 }
25
26 private static String padBin(int intVal) {
27 return String.format("%8s",
28 Integer.toBinaryString(intVal)).replace(' ', '0');
29 }
30
31 public static void main(String args[]) {
32 getUnicode("hello");
33 }
34 }

Hi Jeethu, welcome to CodeRanch.

When you need some help and you post some code, be sure to UseCodeTags. People will be more likely to respond to your question.

Why don't you use some of the nifty methods in the Java API? String.charAt() can get a character from any position in a String. Charset can encode and decode characters. If you have to use String.format() to perform business logic, you're probably doing something wrong.
