What’s the ASCII character code for ‘—’


I am working on decoding text. I am trying to find the character code for the character, not to be mistaken for -, in ASCII. I have tried unsuccessfully. Does anybody know how to convert it?

Best Solution

Quotation from wiki (Em dash)

When an actual em dash is unavailable—as in the ASCII character set—a double ("--") or triple hyphen-minus ("---") is used. In Unicode, the em dash is U+2014 (decimal 8212).

Em dash character is not a part of ASCII character set.
