         Console.WriteLine("{0} converts to '{1}'.", number, result);
      }   
      catch (OverflowException) {
         Console.WriteLine("{0} is outside the range of the Char data type.",
                           number);
      }
   }   
}
//       -1 is outside the range of the Char data type.
