R3m/framework Function reference string.ord

{string.ord(String $character)}

Convert the first byte of a string to a value between 0 and 255.

Interprets the binary value of the first byte of character as an unsigned integer between 0 and 255.

If the string is in a single-byte encoding, such as ASCII, ISO-8859, or Windows 1252, this is equivalent to returning the position of a character in the character set's mapping table.
However, note that this function is not aware of any string encoding, and in particular will never identify a Unicode code point in a multi-byte encoding such as UTF-8 or UTF-16.

This function complements {string.char()}.

Returns an integer between 0 and 255.
