CHR( expression )

CHR returns a single byte string containing the character represented by the ASCII code passed to it. For example, CHR(97) returns "a".

There is no need for a complimentary function, as that type conversion is automatic, see sample code below.


PRINT "the character represented by the ASCII code of 97 is:"; CHR(97)    ' will print   a

DIM a(10) as STRING  ' examples of automatic type conversion complimentary to CHR
a ="asdf"

PRINT a(0), chr(a(0))                   ' will print    97     a
x = a(0)
PRINT x                                       ' will print    97
if x = "a" then PRINT "it is a"          ' will print it is a
