    Short for American Standard Code for Information Interexchange, ASCII is an industry standard, which assigns letters, numbers and other characters within the 256 slots available in the 8-bit code.
    The ASCII table is divided in 3 sections:
    •    Non printable, system codes between 0 and 31.
    •    Lower ASCII, between 32 and 127. This part of the table (as shown below) originates from older, American systems, which worked on 7-bit character tables. Foreign letters, like and were not available then.
    •    Higher ASCII, between 128 and 255. This part is programmable, in that you can exchange characters based on language you want to write in.
