There are the letters and LETTERS vectors. For example,
 "a" "b" "c"
I don't think there's any function that does general ASCII
conversions, but you could fairly easily enter your own vector of
characters if letters aren't sufficient. I imagine you'll have a hard
time entering a null character. If you're on some platforms, you
could write your own general typecasting function using a fifo, but
those aren't supported everywhere.
