#char is a ZZT-OOP command for changing an object's display character.


#char <1-255>

The decimal number represents the extended ASCII code of the desired character. If a code is outside this range, it will be ignored.


  • #char does not allow character 0 as a parameter, even though it is a valid extended ASCII character. Running #char 0 will silently fail without changing the object's character. This restriction does not typically matter in practice because characters 32 and 255 are usually visually identical to character 0.
