About Sensing and controlling the physical world with computers. O’Sullivan, D., & Igoe, T. (2004). Boston, MA: Thomson. interesting quotes about “lost” characters in ASCII table “Another point of confusion stems from the fact that the first 32 entries in the ASII table are control characters, like the “carriage return”( ASCII 13) and “line feed”( ASCII 10), are familiar to you from word processing. Some of them, like “bell”(ASII 7), are left over from the old teletype days. Sending these numbers can cause confusion in environments that can only interpret text characters becaue either nothing shos up, or you get a bunch of garbage characters( square, smiley faces, and other dingbat characters).p142
