How can i view ASCII chars in winXP?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have to create a game for my data structure class as a final project. Well, i decided to use some ASCII to do the drawing, I have to draw a grid, so i decided to use decimal 125, i believe is a bar..? Well, anyway, when i write a short loop program to display the ASCII characters, it is weird. It is not what i exepected. The characters are in some other characters which i can''t figure out what it is. Is there something wrong with my system? Or do I have to config my XP in order to view ASCII char correctly? Thank you.

Show us some code.
This works:


  
#include <stdio.h>

void main() {
char cAscii = 124; //124 == | 125 == }

printf("The ascii value is %c\n",cAscii);
}
/*
OUTPUT
The ascii value is |
Press any key to continue
*/
