R3m/framework Function reference string.char

{string.char(Int $codepoint)}

Generate a single-byte string from a number.

Returns a one-character string containing the character specified by interpreting codepoint as an unsigned integer.

This can be used to create a one-character string in a single-byte encoding such as ASCII, ISO-8859, or Windows 1252, by passing the position of a desired character in the encoding's mapping table.
However, note that this function is not aware of any string encoding, and in particular cannot be passed a Unicode code point value to generate a string in a multibyte encoding like UTF-8 or UTF-16.

This function complements {string.ord()}.

Returns a single-character string containing the specified byte.
