Dear all,

Iam in process of building a parser. I need to convert the numeric
character reference to corresponding ascii.

when numeric character reference like L or ÿ is given i need
to convert those into corresponding ascii. consider character reference
like L my parser will read character by character and eliminate &#;
and store '76' alone in a string variable (temp), so now temp = '76', i
need to generate its corresponding ascii value 'L'. please help me to
the process

  example: WEL after ASCII code conversion it should be WELCOME as
for 76 corresponding ascii value is 'L'.

  Like wise consider the second example ÿ

   now temp = 00ff it should also generate its corresponding ascii code.

   in both cases even if its a decimal value or hexa decimal value its
is stored as string in my process. As iam reading character by character
from buffer and adding each character to temp string.

so please help me to solve this issue..

Thanks in advance...

Regards,
Jose Martin
