coded character set
Jump to user comments
character, standard A mapping from a set of integers to a
set of characters. This mapping is generally 1:1 (i.e.,
bijective), for example, the code position 65 in ASCII
maps only to "A", and it's the only position that maps to "A".
There are several standard coded character sets, the most
widely used is ASCII, generally in its Latin-1 dialect,
with Unicode becoming slowly more common; while EBCDIC and
Baudot are extinct except in legacy systems.
