The numeric value of the Unicode character string.
- The Unicode specification defines the mapping between a character and how it is represented in computer systems using a numeric value. This mapping is called encoding.
- The numeric value is called a code point. The whole collection of code points is called codespace.
- The chr() built-in function in Python converts a numeric value or code point into a string containing the character. The mod() function does the opposite of chr(), given a character it returns the code point.
# Example Python program that returns the Unicode codepoint of a given
# Unicode character string
value1 = 85
value2 = 1028
character1 = chr(value1)
character2 = chr(value2)
