ASCII Table

History of ASCII

ASCII stands for American Standard Code for Information Interchange.  ASCII code is based on the “American Standards Association” committee or “ASA” was created by 1963. Later, the agency decided to change its name in the year 1969 by “American National Standards Institute” or “ANSI” Firstly, it includes only capital letters and numbers.  In the year 1967, added lowercase letters and some controls characters, what is known as US-ASCII i.e. the characters it starts through 0 through 127.  So, by keeping everything in mind they set only 128 characters and are published in 1967 Just keep in mind that it should be written in the English language.

IBM developed an extension of 8-bit ASCII code in the year of 1981 named as “code page 437”, in this version they were replaced by some outdated control characters for graphic characters. They even added 128 characters were added, with new symbols, signs graphics and Latin letters, all punctuation signs, and characters needed to write texts in other languages, such as Spanish.

IBM provides some support to the code page which they were created in the hardware of its model 5150, known as “IBM-PC”, which is considered the personal computer.

What is ASCII CODE?

The computer can understand only the numbers, so ASCII code is the numerical is in the form of character such as ‘a’ or @. ASCII has developed for a long time ago and non-printing characters are rarely used for the actual purpose. ASCII character is a table where you can see all the 32 non-printing characters in a chat. If anyone asks your CV in ASCII format, then it means they want it in a ‘plain’ text with no formatting such as tabs, bolds, or underscores. Therefore, this raw format can be understood by any computer. This, anyone, can easily import the file into their own applications without creating any issues. However, notepad.exe creates ASCII text or the files which are in MS Word can save their files as ‘text only’.

ASCII control characters (Character code 0-31)

The first 32 characters in the ASCII-table are unprintable control codes and are used to control peripherals such as printers.
