The current international character code is
Currently, the international character code is ASCII code.
ASCII code (English full name: AmericanStandardCodeforInformationInterchange, Chinese name: American Standard Code for Information Interchange) is a set of computer coding system based on the Latin alphabet, which is mainly used for displaying modern English and other Western European languages, and it is the most common single-byte coding system today It is the most common single-byte coding system in use today, and is equivalent to the international standard ISO/IEC646.
ASCII uses a combination of 7-bit (Standard ASCII) or 8-bit (Extended ASCII) binary numbers to represent 128 or 256 characters.
How many bits of code is the standard ascii code?
ASCII is a 7-bit code, which means that a byte consists of 7 binary digits, where the highest bit is the parity bit and the other 7 binary digits represent a character.
ASCII code can represent 127 different characters, of which 33 characters have special meanings, such as line breaks, tabs, carriage returns, etc. The other 94 characters are printable characters, which have English letters, Arabic numerals, spaces, and so on, and can represent commonly used English text.
ASCII is particularly important for computers, and many computer languages and programming languages are represented by ASCII, making it a core code for computer communication and text processing.
Later, the character encoding of many advanced text and communication processing systems was extended based on ASCII, such as the GB2312 character set, which means that ASCII is a core code.
