While doing the Rosetta code, I've been doing some work-arounds on not being able to access character codes. I was just working on my own version of the Caesar Cipher, when I came across the Rosetta version which uses the char() function. The reason I had missed this function was because I've been working mainly with string manipulation, and therefore focussed on the string and list sections of the manual.
So as just a general discussion point, should char() be listed as a numeric function or a string function? Str() I can see clearer, as it directly involves using a number, but in char(), the number is simply an offset.
I'm not phased either way, just a realization that me as a newbie missed it, so others may too.
