    Post convert to decimal

    Hi friends,

    i have a set of ascii data's i.e.,(cp437) format.. i want to convert these ascii values to decimal..
    is this possible to convert.

    String asciicp437 = "Ω∞d~" // (cp437 or IBM437)

    am tried the normal concept but i didn't work..

    here is my code
    String asciicp437 = "Ω∞d~╣<";
    for(..........)
    {

    char ch = asciicp437.charAt(i);
    int a = (int)(ch);
    String hex = Integer.toHexString(a);
    system.out.println(hex);
    }


    any one can solve this

    thanks and regards

    When you put your code in [code][/code] tags it's easier to read.

    Also, use a Short, Self Contained, Correct Example so we can see what's actually going on with your code.

    Please make up your mind: your topic title mentions a decimal representation of a char while your code converts an int to a hexadecimal representation; what do you want?

    Maybe, but what "doesn't work" with your code? You have to be explicit about (the behaviour of) your code.

    String asciicp437 = "Ω∞d~╣<";
    What value, in what data type, do you expect to receive when you convert this?
