This operator supports the explicit conversion of a Decimal to a Char. The syntax for such explicit conversions is language-dependent, and individual language compilers might provide different implementations and return different results, or might not support the conversion at all. For example, the Visual Basic and C++ compilers do not support an explicit Decimal to Char conversion.

The following example converts Decimal numbers to Char values (Unicode characters) by using the explicit Decimal to Char conversion.
