chr -- Return a specific character


string chr ( int ascii )

Returns a one-character string containing the character specified by ascii.

Example 1. chr() example

$str = "The string ends in escape: ";
$str .= chr(27); /* add an escape character at the end of $str */

/* Often this is more useful */

$str = sprintf("The string ends in escape: %c", 27);

You can find an ASCII-table over here: http://www.asciitable.com.

This function complements ord(). See also sprintf() with a format string of %c.
