You could do somthing like this, it will only work with lower case letters, somthing you can improve on if it helps. char alpha = 'a'; int position = alpha-96; System.out.print("letter "+alpha+" = "+position);


what language ?


It is not very clear what exactly you want. given a string s = "abcde" some may want to convert it to 01234 or 12345. Some may want to convert each letter to their ascii value. So what you want to do?
