Hi,

ASCII stands for American Standard Code for Information Interchange. It is a method that is used to represent text in computers by the use of digital codes or bits. Since computers cannot understand the human representation of text for instance in English words or any other language, there had to be a way that the text will be represented, and this was by the use digital codes which ASCII offers.

When you enter text into your computer, the text is first converted by the computer into ASCII codes, but the process is so fast that is done within nanoseconds and therefore you can even know that it is happening.

Hope this helps.

Regards,

Lee Hung.
