ASCII stands for American Standard Code for Information Interchange. A character uses one byte of data. Computers store information in bytes which can be a number between 0 and 255. The ASCII standard has assigned characters to values between 0 and 127 and was originally developed as a means of communication between computers and to devices such as printers.
For some examples, codes 0 through 31 are control codes, such as line feeds, formfeeds. and carriage returns. Code 32 is a space. Codes 48 through 57 are the numbers 0 through 9. Capital letters are found in the range of 65 to 90.
