What is ASCII?
ASCII is a character encoding scheme for the transmission of textual information. It is most commonly used in the world of computing and telecommunications. ASCII is a superset of the 7-bit standard code page 437, which was introduced in 1983 as an 8-bit encoding scheme. ASCII replaced 7-bit ASCII, which had been in use since AT&T’s first commercial telephone line in 1879. ASCII was originally based on the typewriter keyboard, which uses only 26 characters.
