In this tutorial, we will learn all about python chr() method.

Python chr() Method

 The chr() method in python returns a string character from an integer. It will represent unicode code which is pointed to the specific character.

The syntax of chr() is:

chr(num)

Python chr() Method Parameters

chr() method takes a single parameter, which is an integer num.

The chr() method can only take a valid range of the integer from 0 to 1,114,111.

Let us see some examples of the chr() method.

Example 1: How chr() works?

print(chr(98))
print(chr(483))
print(chr(1274))

When we execute the above program, we will get the following results.

b
ǣ
Ӻ

Example 2:  Using Negative number with chr() method.

print(chr(-1))
print(chr(-43))
print(chr(-224))

Output:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "", line 1, in <module>
    print(chr(-1))
ValueError: chr() arg not in range(0x110000)

The above program throws an error because we cannot use numbers, not in the chr() method range.

Rules of Python chr() 

  • It will only return a string character whose Unicode code points are the integer of a given number.
  • It will take only integers as an argument.
  • If the integer is outside the range, it will throw a ValueError error.
