If by any chance you mean how to do this in Emacs, you can try this:

C-q 2 2 5 RET

For me that generates: รก

Note: I have set my `read-quoted-char-radix' to 10. by default it is 8
which means you would have to enter the ASCII code in octal.

You might want to put this in your .emacs:

(setq read-quoted-char-radix 10)

Or use M-x customize-option RET read-quoted-char-radix to set it.
