What is ASCII?
ASCII stands for American Standard Code for Information Interchange. It is a character coding scheme for electronic communication as computer can only understand number. Originally ASSCII was developed for telegraph codes but codes were promoted gradually. ASCII encodes characters into seven-bit integers so that computer can understand these encoded digits to follow any instruction. ASCII encodes 128 characters inclusive 32 non-printing control codes. Rest of 95 printing control codes include upper case letters A-Z, lower case letters a-z, 0-9 digits and punctuation symbols.
