About ASCII to Binary Converter

An ASCII to Binary Converter tool is a utility designed to translate ASCII (American Standard Code for Information Interchange) characters into their equivalent binary representation. ASCII is a character encoding standard for electronic communication, encoding 128 specified characters into seven-bit integers. These characters include the English alphabet (uppercase and lowercase), digits (0-9), punctuation marks, and control characters (such as newline and carriage return).

The binary system, on the other hand, is the fundamental language of computers, representing all data using just two symbols: 0 and 1. Each digit in a binary number is considered a bit, and for ASCII characters, which are traditionally represented using 7 bits (though often stored in 8 bits for byte alignment), each character is directly translatable to a unique binary sequence.

The process of converting ASCII to binary involves taking each character in the text, finding its ASCII numerical code, and then converting that decimal number into binary. For example, the ASCII code for the character 'A' is 65 in decimal, which is 1000001 in binary. Similarly, the character 'a' has an ASCII code of 97, which translates to 1100001 in binary.
