ORDCHR(3am)		   GNU Awk Extension Modules		   ORDCHR(3am)

NAME
       ordchr -	convert	characters to strings and vice versa

SYNOPSIS
       @load "ordchr"

       number =	ord("A")
       string =	chr(65)

DESCRIPTION
       The  ordchr  extension  adds  two functions named ord().	 and chr(), as
       follows.

       ord()  This function takes a string argument, and returns  the  numeric
	      value of the first character in the string.

       chr()  This  function  takes  a	numeric	 argument and returns a	string
	      whose first character is that represented	by the number.

       These functions are inspired by the Pascal language  functions  of  the
       same name.

EXAMPLE
       @load "ordchr"
       ...
       printf("The numeric value of 'A'	is %d\n", ord("A"))
       printf("The string value	of 65 is %s\n",	chr(65))
