    Default Getting ASCII codes of character

    I am writing a method that will take a character and will check if it lies under ASCII range. I know the ASCII codes range but don't know exactly how to proceed. The method signature is as follows:

    Java Code:
    public static boolean validateCharacter(char a)
    {
    ...
    }
    Kindly advice.

    If you know the range, you can simply check for the number in that range, for example:
    Java Code:
    1) if char [B]a[/B] is a value between 97 to 122
       i) output "lowercase character" or "in range"
    You could also find an API provided ways to test for these problems.
