Glossary > ASCII/ANSI-set
ASCII is an acronym for "American Standard Code for Information Interchange". The ASCII-code is an assignment of numbers to the characters of the US-American alphabet, to the digits and to the punctuation characters. Furthermore the ASCII-code contains so-called control characters.
In the extended ASCII-code also characters of other languages can be denoted; for example the German umlauts.
Beside of the ASCII-code there are other codes. Windows prefers the ANSI-code ( more exact: Windows-1252). For some years has there been the Unicode set which can represent almost all written languages of the world.
The upper 'A' has an ASCII-code of 65. The ASCII-code of a space is 32.
You can see the whole table in the TextTransformer: Help->ASCII-table.
Warning: the ASCII-code of a digit is not identical with its numeric value. The digit '2' for example has the ASCII-code 50.
