c++: getting ascii value of a wide char

wish help you to fix your issue You're contradicting yourself. International characters like ä are (by definition) not in the ASCII character set, so they don't have an "ascii value".
It depends on the exact encoding of your two-character array, if you can get the code point for a single character or not, and if so which format it will be in.

Can't assign wide char into wide char field.

wish help you to fix your issue clang seems to support entering arbitrary byte sequences into to wide strings with the \x notation:
code :
wchar_t c = L'\x2126';
#include <stdio.h>
#include <wchar.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <locale.h>

int main(void)
    wchar_t myChar1 = L'\x2126';
    wchar_t myChar2 = 0x2126;  // hexadecimal encoding of char Ω using UTF-16
    wprintf(L"This is char: %lc \n",myChar1);
    wprintf(L"This is char: %lc \n",myChar2);

Assigning non-ASCII characters to wide char and printing with printf

hope this fix your issue I think your calls to printf() fail with an «Illegal byte sequence» error returned in errno, at least that is what happens here on MacOS X with the above example code (and also if using wprintf() instead of printf()). For me it works when I call setlocale(LC_ALL, ""); before the call to printf() so that it stops using the C locale by default:
code :
#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <locale.h>
int main(void)
    wchar_t wc = L'ć';

    setlocale(LC_ALL, "");
    printf("%lc\n", wc);

    return 0;

C : wrong char to ascii conversion (char from the extended ascii table)

This might help you Because char is from -127 to 127. You can't use extended ASCII table like that.
I suggest you use wchar instead. Check wchar.h and wctype.h manual.

Convert UTF-32 wide char to UTF-16 wide char in Linux for Supplementary Plane characters

I wish did fix the issue. The following is the code to convert UTF-32 encoded wide characters to UTF-16
code :
//Function to convert a Unicode string from platform-specific "wide characters" (wchar_t) to UTF-16.
void ConvertUTF32ToUTF16(wchar_t* source,
                         const uint32_t sourceLength,
                         wchar_t*& destination,
                         uint32_t& destinationLength)

  wchar_t wcharCharacter;
  uint32_t uniui32Counter = 0;

  wchar_t* pwszDestinationStart = destination;
  wchar_t* sourceStart = source;

  if(0 != destination)
    while(uniui32Counter < sourceLength)
      wcharCharacter = *source++;
      if(wcharCharacter <= 0x0000FFFF)
        /* UTF-16 surrogate values are illegal in UTF-32
           0xFFFF or 0xFFFE are both reserved values */
        if(wcharCharacter >= 0xD800 && 
           wcharCharacter <= 0xDFFF)
          *destination++ = 0x0000FFFD;
          destinationLength += 1;
          /* source is a BMP Character */
          destinationLength += 1;
          *destination++ = wcharCharacter;
      else if(wcharCharacter > 0x0010FFFF)
        /* U+10FFFF is the largest code point of Unicode Character Set */
        *destination++ = 0x0000FFFD;
        destinationLength += 1;
        /* source is a character in range 0xFFFF - 0x10FFFF */
        wcharCharacter -= 0x0010000UL;
        *destination++ = (wchar_t)((wcharCharacter >> 10) + 0xD800);
        *destination++ = (wchar_t)((wcharCharacter & 0x3FFUL) + 0xDC00);
        destinationLength += 2;


    destination = pwszDestinationStart;
    destination[destinationLength] = '\0';

  source = sourceStart;
} //function ends

Convert Char String of Wide Chars into ASCII

wish of those help On platforms where wchar_t is 2 bytes (ie, Windows), you can use wcstombs().
