digitalmars.D - VB functions conversion

Sorry for all the postings... :-)

I am translating a VB program to d and I can't find a function in d that does
the same as Asc in VB.  The Asc function returns an integer.  For example, this
vbscript program,

WScript.Echo(Asc("a"))
WScript.Echo(Asc("a"))
WScript.Echo(Asc("b"))
WScript.Echo(Asc("c"))
WScript.Echo(Asc("A"))
WScript.Echo(Asc("B"))
WScript.Echo(Asc("C"))

will return

and I can{t find a function under std.conv to address this.  I guess I could
write a function on the d program itself to do this, but I want to use the d
functions, if possible.

any ideas?

thanks,

how about cast(int) ? :) import std.stdio; void main() { writefln(cast(int)'a'); writefln(cast(int)'b'); writefln(cast(int)'c'); getchar(); } Tom
