  2. 2. ASCII-8</li></ul>ASCII-7: 7 bit code that can represent 128(27) different characters.<br /><ul><li>Computers using 8 bit byte and 7 ASCII either set 8th bit of each byte as zero or use it as parity bit. </li></ul> ASCII – 8: extended version of ASCII-7<br /><ul><li>8-bit code that can represent 256(28) different characters.
  3. 3. Additional bit is added to left of 7th bit of ASCII-7 codes.</li></ul> EXAMPLE: <br />GIRL n binary no : 1000111 1001001 1010010 1001100<br /> G I R L<br />EBDIC :<br /> Extended Binary Coded Decimal Interchange Code<br />PURPOSE: <br />Standard 8 bit code used for large computers<br />CHARACTER ZONE DIGIT<br />A 11000001<br />B11000010<br />C 11000011<br />D11000100<br />E11000101<br />F11000110<br />G11000111<br />H 11001000<br />I 11001001<br />EXAMPLE: <br />BID in BINARY<br />1100001011001001 11000100<br /> B I D<br />
