📌 .ASCII container is a simple text object, which stores and opens up data in ASCII encoding. ASCII methodology is a data encoding standard, applied by telegraph operators since the early 1960s. Computer mainframes make use of a proper algorithm to transform the binary data into punctuation and alphanumeric symbols, represented and opened in decimal or hexadecimal shape. The extension resources can also be stored as .ASC or .CSV files and are distinguished by similar structure and composition. Currently the ASCII-encoded symbols are displayed in Unicode form, applied by contemporary web-browsers and text editors, which rely on a typical scheme.
📌 The resulting disk objects can be easily downloaded, opened up, operated and processed by any default text editors, available in desktop operating systems. There is also a chance to handle .ASCII-format in mobile environments and shells.
