You are here: Strings > CharacterCodeExtractor


Extracts the integral character code of the first character in the source string attribute, and adds its integer value in the character set to the feature as another attribute.

This can be used to obtain the integer code of any Unicode character (from Basic Multilingual Plane), including non-printable ones.



For example, a CJK unified ideograph 东 character as the first character of the source string attribute would result in a value of 19996 (U+4E1C) being placed in the character code attribute.

Usage Notes

To obtain the character equivalent of a numeric value, use the CharacterEncoder transformer.
