(Redirected from ASCII)Jump to navigationJump to search
Commodore employed a variation of the standard ASCII commonly referred to as PETSCII or PETASCII. This variation included a set of graphical symbols, in addition to the normal ASCII character set.
While the standard ASCII character set limited itself to 127 values, Commodore's PETSCII included 192 values to include their extended graphics characters.
PETSCII was first introduced with the Commodore PET to allow for simple, character-based graphics for game support. The character set was repeated in the Commodore VIC-20, C64, CBM-II, Plus/4, C16, C116, and the C128.
