# Function std::char::from_digit1.0.0 [−] [src]

`pub fn from_digit(num: u32, radix: u32) -> Option<char>`

Converts a digit in the given radix to a `char`.

A 'radix' here is sometimes also called a 'base'. A radix of two indicates a binary number, a radix of ten, decimal, and a radix of sixteen, hexadecimal, to give some common values. Arbitrary radices are supported.

`from_digit()` will return `None` if the input is not a digit in the given radix.

# Panics

Panics if given a radix larger than 36.

# Examples

Basic usage:

```use std::char;

let c = char::from_digit(4, 10);

assert_eq!(Some('4'), c);

// Decimal 11 is a single digit in base 16
let c = char::from_digit(11, 16);

assert_eq!(Some('b'), c);Run```

Returning `None` when the input is not a digit:

```use std::char;

let c = char::from_digit(20, 10);

assert_eq!(None, c);Run```

Passing a large radix, causing a panic:

```use std::thread;
use std::char;

let result = thread::spawn(|| {
// this panics
let c = char::from_digit(1, 37);
}).join();

assert!(result.is_err());Run```
