|Description:||Returns the position of a character in the ASCII character set, even if the processor's default character set is different. In Compaq Fortran, IACHAR is equivalent to the ICHAR function.|
|Class:||Elemental function; Generic|
|Arguments:||C must be of type character of length 1.|
|Results:||The result is of type default integer. If C
is in the ASCII collating sequence, the result is the position of
C in that sequence and satisfies the inequality (0 <= IACHAR(C) <= 127).
The results must be consistent with the LGE, LGT, LLE, and LLT lexical comparison functions. For example, if LLE(C, D) is true, IACHAR(C) .LE. IACHAR(D) is also true.
IACHAR ( 'Y' ) has the value 89.
IACHAR ( '%' ) has the value 37.
