checking for ASCII character

Hi, is there a way to check if a letter entered is an uppercase ASCII
character?

Thanks

If you just want to know if a character is uppercase:

if character.isupper():
<some code>

If it needs to be ASCII, the simplest way is probably:

if ord(character) in range(65, 91):
<some code>

one could check for ascii by doing:

try :
character.encode('ascii')
except UnicodeDecodeError :
ascii = False
else :
ascii = True

if ascii and character.isupper() :
pass

or something like it

ascii_uppercase in the string module contains all uppercase ASCII chars.
Use "if ... in ..." to find out whether your letter is in that constant.
