In this post we’ll be creating a Python script that will retrieve the Unicode code of a character as an integer.
To achieve this we use the ‘ord()’ function, see the example below for how this is done.
print(ord('a')) #Returns 97 print(ord('b')) #Returns 98
Similarly we can inverse this and convert a Unicode code back in to a character. To do this we would use the ‘chr()’ function as seen below.
print(chr(97)) #Returns a print(chr(98)) #Returns b
