Two items:

1) Never use 'str' as a variable name as it will
shadow the built in str function.  If you do, this
WILL jump up and bite you.

2) Either s=str(n) or s="%i" % n will return string
containing '5' (without the quotes of course).

Note: chr(n) would return character whose ASCII decimal
value is 5 (ASCII ENQ).
