"A" in either ASCII or Unicode, and chr(0x263a) is a Unicode smiley face.

If NUMBER is omitted, uses
For the reverse, use ord.
Note that characters from 128 to 255 (inclusive) are by default internally not encoded as UTF-8 for backward compatibility reasons.
See perlunicode for more about Unicode.
