ASCII Full Form is American Standard Code for Information Interchange. ASCII is one of the most used formats of text files on the Web and in computers. ASCII was initially derived from telegraph codes. It was developed by ANSI or American National Standards Institute. Every numerical, alphabetical, and special character in an ASCII file is denoted by a 7-bit binary code.
It has become the standard format, which is vastly used to transfer texts between two or more computers. ASCII is used to receive and send emails. These files can also be used as the common denominator to convert data. For instance, if program A and program B have different formats, either of them can be converted, if both programs can support ASCII file imports.
