  Embedded Systems Design - Embedded.com
ASCII was originally developed for communications and uses only seven bits per character, providing 128 combinations that include upper and lower case alphabetic letters, the numeric digits and special symbols such as the $ and %.
Since the common storage unit in a computer is an 8-bit byte (256 character combinations) and ASCII uses only the first 128 (0-127), the second set of 128 characters (128-255) are technically not ASCII, but are typically used for foreign language and math symbols.
ASCII is entered by typing in regular text, but because there are not enough keys on the keyboard to enter 256 distinct characters, the hexadecimal (hex) numbering system is used.

 ASCII - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
ASCII is, strictly, a seven-bit code, meaning that it uses the bit patterns representable with seven binary digits (a range of 0 to 127 decimal) to represent character information.
At the time ASCII was introduced, many computers dealt with eight-bit groups (bytes or, more specifically, octets) as the smallest unit of information; the eighth bit was commonly used as a parity bit for error checking on communication lines or other device-specific functions.
ASCII reserves the first 32 codes (numbers 0–31 decimal) for control characters: codes originally intended not to carry printable information, but rather to control devices (such as printers) that make use of ASCII, or to provide meta-information about data streams such as those stored on magnetic tape.

 ASCII art - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
ASCII art is an artistic medium that relies primarily on computers for presentation and consists of pictures pieced together from the 95 printable characters defined by ASCII.
ASCII art is also used within the source code of computer programs for representation of company or product logos, and flow control or other diagrams.
ASCII art is also very commonly used amongst software piracy groups to display group logos inside text (*.nfo) files containing the instructions for installing and cracking the software (though these commonly use PC text mode characters as well as just ASCII).

ASCII (American Standard Code for Information Interchange, generally pronounced ass-key) is a character set and a character encoding based on the Roman alphabet as used in modern English and other Western European languages.
There are many variations of ASCII, but its present, most widely-used form is ANSI X3.4-1967, also standardized as ECMA-6, ISO/IEC 646:1991 International Reference Version, and ITU-T Recommendation T.50 (09/92).
ASCII is considered by some the most successful software standard ever promulgated.

ASCII  is  not  dead  and  activities will still continue online and in other  hacktive  spaces.  It is felt by the people involved that offering a free interenet workspace in Amsterdam is not a priority anymore, because of the near ubiquitous and cheap access in the city nowadays.

 ASCII - a definition from Whatis.com
ASCII (American Standard Code for Information Interchange) is the most common format for text files in computers and on the Internet.
In an ASCII file, each alphabetic, numeric, or special character is represented with a 7-bit binary number (a string of seven 0s or 1s).
ASCII was developed by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).

A history of ASCII and its ancestors is at http://www.wps.com/texts/codes/index.html.
The inability of ASCII text to correctly represent any of the world's other major languages makes the designers' choice of 7 bits look more and more like a serious misfeature as the use of international networks continues to increase (see software rot).
Hardware and software from the U.S. still tends to embody the assumption that ASCII is the universal character set and that characters have 7 bits; this is a major irritant to people who want to use a character set suited to their own languages.

ASCII is an acronym for American Standard Code for Information Interchange, a 7-bit code that represents the most basic letters of the Roman alphabet, numbers, and other characters used in computing.
ASCII characters allow us to communicate with computers, which use their own language called binary made up of 0s and 1s.
When we type ASCII characters from the keyboard (which looks like words to us), the computer interprets them as binary so they can be read, manipulated, stored and retrieved.

 Lotus Domino Designer 6.5 Help - @Ascii
Any character that can't be represented by ASCII codes 32 to 127 is replaced with a question mark (?).
If you specify [ALLINRANGE] and there are characters that can't be represented by ASCII codes 32 to 127, returns a null string ("").
@Ascii first converts the string into ASCII-compliant characters, replacing any unrepresented characters with question marks, and then, if [ALLINRANGE] is True, checks for question marks within the string.

ASCII art can not be defined by one particular pattern/rule but by many rules.

 ASCII Character Set
Pronounced as-key, ASCII is a sequential formula for representing English characters as numbers, with each letter assigned a number from 0 to 127; however, not all of those are really printable characters.
For example, the ASCII code for an upper case A is decimal 65; the lower case a adds decimal 32 to that and is 97.
ASCII control characters are actually commands for the terminal, monitor, computer, I/O devices, printer or other peripherals to do something.
