The American Standard Code for Information Interchange (ASCII) is a common character-encoding standard that computers use to store, transmit, and print English (or Latin) text. ASCII codes represent text in computers, telecommunications equipment, and other devices. The publication of the first edition of the ASCII was in 1963 by the American Standards Association (ASA), now called the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).
