Every hardware device does not understand any upper level code. For example x = 10 in Python means x is a variable having value 10. But internally hardware doesn’t understand 10 or x, rather it understands only ones/zeros(10000010010). That’s why American Standards Association has defined some rules which state that any character would be assigned a specific number which internally will translate to zeros/ones. These rules are known as ASCII – American Standard Code For Information Interchange. For example – Character c is equivalent to 112 as per ASCII.
So c => 112(As Per ASCII) =>Some Sequence of ones/zeros(internally)
Python Code for Finding ASCII Value of Character
# Finding ASCII value of Character using Python Code some_character = "d" # Printing out ASCII value of some_character print("ASCII value of character is =>", ord(some_character))
Output of Above Code
ASCII value of character is => 100
