As the name suggests, our text to ASCII converter converts your data that you have in text format to the ASCII format. You can do this by writing or pasting the text in the given bar and simply press ‘convert’.
As soon as you press ‘convert’ our text to ASCII tool will compute the conversion and your result in ASCII format will appear on the top right side within a second. This is how simple it is. It’s free to use and is designed with simplicity in mind.
What is text?
We all know what ‘text’ is. We use it in our everyday lives for various purposes, for chatting, writing letters and stuff like home-work.
What is ASCII?
However, not many people are acquainted with ASCII. It stands for the ‘American Standard Code for Information Interchange’
It is a character encoding metric for electronic communication. ASCII codes denote text in computers, telecom equipment, and other similar technology.
ASCII codes 128 particular characters into 7-bit integers. 95 of these characters are designated as printable: these include digits from 0 to 9, lowercase letters a to z, uppercase letters A to Z, and punctuation signs.
For instance, lowercase letter ‘i’ would be denoted in the ASCII format with binary code \(‘1101001’\) that is equal to hexadecimal \(‘69’\) (i being the 9th letter) = decimal \(105\).
ASCII-code order is also known as ASCIIbetical order. All uppercase letters precede lowercase letters or to put it rather simply ‘Z’ precedes ‘a’. On the other hand, digits and many punctuation marks precede letters altogether.
It was first employed commercially during the time in 1963 as a 7-bit tele-printer code for American Telephone. It was Bob Bemer who introduced features like the escape sequence. His colleague from Britain, Hugh McGregor Ross assisted him in popularizing this work – according to Bemer, "so much so that the code that later went by the name of ASCII was initially called the Bemer–Ross Code in Europe". Because of his excessive work in this regard, Bemer has been famously called "the father of ASCII".
ASCII was the most used character encoding program on the World Wide Web until December 2007, when UTF-8 encoding overthrew it.
When it comes to computers, ASCII stands in the middle between the operator and the machine. Computers assign their binary operations with particular ASCII codes which they read as text.
There is no direct method by which computers can process text except through the correspondence between binary operations and ASCII.
This is where our ASCII converter comes in handy, computer engineers often use it to convert text to ASCII. The reasons are wide-ranging. They can use it to test their hardware by directly feeding their machines ASCII to see if they process correctly or not.
