You want ord and chr, respectively:

You almost certainly want a variant of the StringIO class, either in the
StringIO (Python-only) or cStringIO (optimized C):
>>> import StringIO
>>> output = StringIO.StringIO()
>>> output.write("Hello, world.\n")
>>> input = StringIO.StringIO("Goodbye, world.\n")
