A code that assigns numbers to the letters of the alphabet, the digits 0 through 9, and punctuation marks. For example, the capital letter A is coded as 65. (In the binary number system used by computers, 65 is written 1000001.) By standardizing the code used in representing written text, ASCII enables computers to exchange information.
