    Question Help with String.fromCharCode()?

    The following is a program where I have to convert from String to ASCII Code and then from ASCII Code back to String. This is what I have so far. The part where I convert to ASCII Code works perfectly. I don't have any problem. But when it comes to convert back to String is where I'm having a hard time. You can try the program by typing apple in the text area but it simply doesn't work. Can you please help me detect the problem? I would greatly appreciate it.

    That creates a single-element array. Just split the string directly, after losing any leading or trailing spaces:
    function thisFunction2() 
     var thisArray2 = document.thisForm.clearText.value.replace(/^\s*|\s*$/g, "").split(' ');
     for(var i = 0; i < thisArray2.length; i++)
      document.thisForm.clearText2.value += String.fromCharCode( thisArray2[ i ] );

    Q: I found this code...
    A: Then find its author.
