    Hello again :)

    I'm generating a random number between 0 and 9
    I want to assign that number to a character so I can store it in a character array;

    something like
    if i = 3
    c = '3';

    if i =4
    c = '4'

    but smarter way :sosp:

    Directly assigning should do the job for you.

    char c = i;

    if (i>=0 && i<=9) c=i+'0';
    Or just generate random numbers between '0' and '9'.

    use dynamic cast
    or
    for example
    int a;
    char b;
    b<int>=a;

    yes, but will that convert 0x00000000 to '0', which is what the OP wanted, or will it convert it to 0x00?
