C++: Printing the ASCII value of a char

This entry is part 7 of 61 in the series C++

Using iostream cout, we can print out the integer value of an ASCII char.

If you check the ascii value of b, it’s decimal value is 98.  This can be shown in the program below where we define an integer b with the char ‘b’.

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

void main()

	int b = 'b';   // note: char implicitly converted to int
	char c = 'c';

	cout << 'a' << endl;
	cout << b << endl;
	cout << c << endl;
