Convert Text to Binary


Convert Text to Binary refers to the process of taking a sequence of characters or text and transforming each individual character into its corresponding binary representation. In this process, characters are encoded using their numerical ASCII code values in binary format.

ASCII (American Standard Code for Information Interchange) is a widely used character encoding standard that assigns numerical values to characters. Each character is represented by a unique 8-bit binary code (byte) in ASCII. When converting text to binary, each character's ASCII value is translated into its binary equivalent.

For example, let's take the word "hello". When you convert this text to binary using ASCII encoding, you would get:

  • "h" corresponds to the binary value "01101000".
  • "e" corresponds to the binary value "01100101".
  • "l" corresponds to the binary value "01101100".
  • "l" corresponds to the binary value "01101100".
  • "o" corresponds to the binary value "01101111".

So, the text "hello" converted to binary using ASCII encoding would be: "01101000 01100101 01101100 01101100 01101111".

Each binary value represents the combination of bits needed to represent the corresponding ASCII character. Converting text to binary can be useful in various programming, networking, and data manipulation scenarios, especially when dealing with data at a low level.

It's important to note that there are different binary encoding schemes beyond ASCII, such as UTF-8, which supports a wider range of characters from different languages. The conversion process might involve different encoding rules depending on the character set being used.
