    Command:

    ascii

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           ascii [-dxohv] [-t] [char-alias...]
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           Called with no options, ascii behaves like 'ascii -h'. Options are as
           follows:
    
           -t
               Script-friendly mode, emits only ISO/decimal/hex/octal/binary
               encodings of the character.
    
           -s
               Parse multiple characters. Convenient way of parsing strings.
    
           -d
               Ascii table in decimal.
    
           -x
               Ascii table in hex.
    
           -o
               Ascii table in octal.
    
           -h, -?
               Show summary of options and a simple ASCII table.
    
           -v
               Show version of program.
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           Characters in the ASCII set can have many aliases, depending on
           context. A character's possible names include:
    
           *
               Its bit pattern (binary representation).
    
           *
               Its hex, decimal and octal representations.
    
           *
               Its teletype mnemonic and caret-notation form (for control chars).
    
           *
               Its backlash-escape form in C (for some control chars).
    
           *
               Its printed form (for printables).
    
           *
               Its full ISO official name in English.
    
           *
    
           character
               Any character not described by one of the following conventions
               represents the character itself.
    
           ^character
               A caret followed by a character.
    
           \character
               A backslash followed by certain special characters (abfnrtv).
    
           mnemonic
               An ASCII teletype mnemonic.
    
           hexadecimal
               A hexadecimal (hex) sequence consists of one or two
               case-insensitive hex digit characters (01234567890abcdef). To
               ensure hex interpretation use hexh, 0xhex, xhex or \xhex.
    
           decimal
               A decimal sequence consists of one, two or three decimal digit
               characters (0123456789). To ensure decimal interpretation use
               \0ddecimal, ddecimal, or \ddecimal.
    
           octal
               An octal sequence consists of one, two or three octal digit
               characters (01234567). To ensure octal interpretation use \octal,
               0ooctal, ooctal, or \ooctal.
    
           bit pattern
               A bit pattern (binary) sequence consists of one to eight binary
               digit characters (01). To ensure bit interpretation use 0bbit
               pattern, bbit pattern or \bbit pattern.
    
           ISO/ECMA code
               A ISO/ECMA code sequence consists of one or two decimal digit
               characters, a slash, and one or two decimal digit characters.
    
           name
               An official ASCII or slang name.
    
           The slang names recognized and printed out are from a rather
           comprehensive list that first appeared on USENET in early 1990 and has
           been continuously updated since. Mnemonics recognized and printed
           include the official ASCII set, some official ISO names (where those
           differ) and a few common-use alternatives (such as NL for LF).
           HTML/SGML entity names are also printed when applicable. All
           comparisons are case-insensitive, and dashes are mapped to spaces. Any
           unrecognized arguments or out of range values are silently ignored.
           Note that the -s option will not recognize 'long' names, as it cannot
           differentiate them from other parts of the string.
    
           the man page. David N. Welton <davidw@efn.org> added the -s option.
           Matej Vela corrected the ISO names. Dave Capella contributed the idea
           of listing HTML/SGML entities.
