I've searched all over for an answer to this, including this forum, so sorry if I missed something,
anyway, I'd like to get a numerical code from extended characters like ß or ü and so on.
I don't use them very much myself, as I'm a native English language user! But they pop up enough that I should be able to support them if they arise.
I have found some information on long chars but I didn't manage to find a resource I could understand enough to actually use.
char c; int i; c = 'h'; i = c; std::cout << i << "\n";
i is now equal to 104, the standard ascii number.
How can I consistently get the same number from one of the extended characters, and convert back again if needed?
