Subject Cobol
American National Standard Code for Information Interchange.
The standard code uses a coded character set that is based on 7-bit coded characters (8 bits including parity check). The standard is used for information interchange between data processing systems, data communication systems, and associated equipment. The ASCII set consists of control characters and graphic characters.
IBM has defined an extension to ASCII (characters 128-255).
