7.1.5.1 $ASCII

$A[SCII] ( expr )

This form produces an integer value as follows:

  1. –1 if the value of expr is the empty string.
  2. Otherwise, an integer n associated with the leftmost character of the value of expr, such that $ASCII($Char(n)) = n.

$A[SCII] ( expr , intexpr )

This form is similar to $ASCII(expr) except that it works with the intexprth character of expr instead of the first. Formally, $ASCII(expr,intexpr) is defined to be $ASCII($Extract(expr,intexpr)).
