ASCII (American Standard Code for Information Interchange) is a 7-bit character set that contains characters from 0 to 127.

The generic term ANSI (American National Standards Institute) is used for 8-bit character sets. These character sets contain the unchanged ASCII character set. In addition, they contain further characters from 128 to 255, which differ in the various ANSI character sets. There are character sets for western special characters and umlauts, and for Arabic, Greek or Cyrillic characters.

The following table shows which characters are available in which (western) character set:

32 - 126Printable charactersYESYESYES
127Control charactersYESYESYES
128 - 159Printable charactersNOYESNO
(only as control characters)
160 - 255Printable charactersNOYESYES

ASCII Control Characters (0-31 and 127)

These characters are part of ASCII, Windows-1252 and ISO-8859-1.

The characters with the ASCII codes 0 to 31 and 127 are control characters which are not intended for display.

The caret notation (in column "C") is often used in terminals to display control characters. These can usually be entered using the control key (Ctrl). For example, the notation "^C" corresponds to the key combination Ctrl+C.

The escape sequence (in column "E") is used e.g. in programming languages or search functions to be able to enter control characters as text.
