1
Text (and email) Plain text and formatted text. Plain text is usually coded in “ASCII” (American Standard Code for Information Interchange). A 7 bit code which allows 128 characters. Computers usually deal with 8 bits so ASCII appears to “waste” one bit.

2
Text “ASCII” coded text was originally designed to connect terminals (keyboard and text monitors) to remote computers. Errors could occur in the connection. Bit 8 used for parity checks.

3
ASCII Full list of ASCII codes will appear on my website and will be given as a handout. But common letters and numbers are easy to remember. Upper case letters –Add 64 (decimal) (40 (hex)) to position in alphabet. Eg Code for B is 64 + 2 = 66 Or 40 + 2 = 42 in hexadecimal.

4
ASCII Lower case letters –Add 96 (decimal) (60 (hex)) to position in alphabet. Eg Code for a is 96 + 1 = 97 Or 60 + 1 = 61 in hexadecimal. Numbers –Add 48 (decimal) (30 (hex)) to number. Eg Code for 5 is 48 + 5 = 53 Or 30 + 5 = 35 in hexadecimal. Working in hex may be easier.

5
Parity Since we mentioned it. Error checking mechanism. Odd or even, (but we decide first). In 7 bit code (like ASCII) we use the 8 th (MSB) for parity. We set the bit to one or zero to make the total number of 1’s odd (for odd parity) or even (for even parity).

6
Odd Parity Example 1 –Say our seven bit number is 011101. There are 4 ones. –We add an 8 th bit of value 1 to make the total number of ones odd, giving (1)011101. Example 2 –Say our seven bit number is 010101. There are 3 ones. –We add an 8 th bit of value 0 to keep the total number of ones odd, giving (0)010101.

7
Even Parity Example 1 –Say our seven bit number is 001101. There are 3 ones. –We add an 8 th bit of value 1 to make the total number of ones even, giving (1)001101. Example 2 –Say our seven bit number is 110101. There are 4 ones. –We add an 8 th bit of value 0 to keep the total number of ones even, giving (0)110101.

8
Parity Checked by receiving computer to see if there is an error. Can you see a problem with this? Clue - 2 errors. Midi code (for sound synthesiser communication) very similar to ASCII, but no parity.
