ASCII format for Network Interchange
For concreteness, we suggest the use of standard 7-bit ASCII embedded in an 8 bit byte whose high order bit is always 0. This leads to the standard code given on the attached page, copies from USAS X3, 4-1968. This code will be used over HOST-HOST primary connections. Break characters will be defined by the receiving remote host, e.g. SRI uses “.” (ASCII X’2E’ or 2/14) as the end-of-line character, where as UCLA uses X’OD’ or 0/13 (carriage return).
USA Standard Code for Information Interchange
This coded character set is to be used for the general interchange of
information among information processing systems, communication
systems, and associated equipment.
