What is the opposite of python's ord() function?

I found out about Python's ord() function which returns corresponding Unicode codepoint value. But what is the opposite function, i.e. get char value by int?

Edit: I'm new to SO, and couldn't find the answer here, so decided to post in order to everyone could find it more easily, although the answer is quite obvious. Then I read this - How much research effort is expected of Stack Overflow users? and realised it was a huge mistake. Apologies. hope it will be useful in that sense.

    • well you saved me some time going through Python documentation, so I don't understand why this question would be downvoted unless it's a duplicate


Given a string of length one, return an integer representing the Unicode code point of the character when the argument is a unicode object, or the value of the byte when the argument is an 8-bit string. For example, ord('a') returns the integer 97, ord(u'\u2020') returns 8224. This is the inverse of chr() for 8-bit strings and of unichr() for unicode objects. If a unicode argument is given and Python was built with UCS2 Unicode, then the character’s code point must be in the range [0..65535] inclusive; otherwise the string length is two, and a TypeError will be raised.


Return a string of one character whose ASCII code is the integer i. For example, chr(97) returns the string 'a'. This is the inverse of ord(). The argument must be in the range [0..255], inclusive; ValueError will be raised if i is outside that range. See also unichr().
