C++ Program to Find ASCII Value of a Character

Find ASCII value of

In this program, you will learn to find ASCII value of a character

A character variable holds ASCII value (an integer number between 0 and 127) rather than that character itself in C++ programming. That value is known as ASCII value. Below is Program to Find ASCII value.

For example, ASCII value of ‘A’ is 65.

What this means is that, if you assign ‘A’ to a character variable, 65 is stored in that variable rather than ‘A’ itself.

Program to Print ASCII Value

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

int main()
 char c;
 cout << "Enter a character: "; cin >> c;
 cout << "ASCII Value of " << c << " is " << int(c);
 return 0;


Enter a character: p
ASCII Value of p is 112

When we explicitly print the integer value of a char type, it’s corresponding ASCII value is printed.
