What is binary and what is ASCII

In everyday life, we use the decimal number system, which consists of only ten digits from 0 to 9, and all other numbers are a combination of these numbers. This combination is called the positional system. Number systems can also be viewed as formal languages. So, the decimal number system is a language whose alphabet consists of ten digits 0..9, the binary number system is a language whose alphabet consists of two numbers - 0 and 1. Technically, it would be very difficult to make a computer that would “understand »Decimal numbers. But making a computer that understands binary numbers is easy enough. A binary number operates with only two digits - 0 and 1. It is not difficult to compare two states with these digits - off and on (no voltage - there is voltage). A processor is a multi-pin chip. If we assume that the absence of voltage at the pin is 0 (zero), and the presence of voltage at the pin is 1, then each pin can work with one binary digit.

The basis for computer character encoding standards was the ASCII code - the American standard code for information exchange, developed in the 1960s in the United States and used for any, including non-computer, methods of transmitting information (telegraph, facsimile, etc). Codes 0 through 1F are control characters that are not printed. Many non-printable ASCII characters are needed to transfer data. For example, a message can consist of the SOH header start character, the header itself and the STX text start character, the text itself and the ETX end-of-text character, and the end-of-transmission character EOT. However, data on the network is transmitted in packets, which are themselves responsible for the beginning and end of transmission. So non-printable characters are almost never used.
