I am working on this assignment and this is the first class I have used
ruby with so please forgive if some of these questions seem elementary.

Basically the job is to take a string with characters "a-zA-Z0-9" and
then turn it into an array using the .split method.  Then do an "each
do" loop that will run through each array of the character array and
find the ASCII value.  my issue is I dont know how to take the character
and convert it into ASCII.

Here is a copy of what i got so far::?
#set up first array
characters = 'a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y z A B C
D E F   ...G ...H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
9'
    characterArray = characters.split

#set up next array by using a loop to determine the ASCII value of each
...character

characterArray.each do |ascii|
    print "#{ascii} \n"
end
