Write a C Program to Find ASCII Value of a Character

January 05, 2021

In C programming, a character holds the value of C rather than that of character.

  • The ASCII value of a is 97
  • The ASCII value of A is 65

If you input A to a character variable, 65 is stored into a character variable. You should have basic knowledge in C input/output, C variables, etc.

    #include <stdio.h>
    int main() {  
        char ch;
        printf("Enter a character: ");
        scanf("%c", &ch);  
        printf("ASCII value of %c is %d", ch, ch);
        return 0;


         Enter a character: B
         ASCII value of B is 66

In this program, the user inputs a character. The input character is stored in ch. %d format is used to convert the input character to ASCII value. Suppose the input is v, the ASCII value of the input character is 118.

ASCII stands for American Standard Code for information interchange. ASCII is a character encoding scheme used for electronic communication. Each character is represented by some ASCII code.

In C programming, the ASCII value represents the character variable in numbers. The number range from 0 to 127. For example, the ASCII value of A is 65.
