The set of all textual characters or symbols and their corresponding binary patterns is called a data code. Three important data codes are EBCDIC, ASCII, and Unicode (White, 2009). EBCDIC The Extended Binary Coded Decimal Interchange Code (EBCDIC) is an eight- bit code allowing 256 ( = 28 256) possible combinations of textual symbols. They are all uppercase and lowercase letters, the numbers 0 - 9, many special symbols and punctuation marks, and control characters (White, 2009).

It includes a seven-bit version that allows for 128 ( = 27 128) possible combinations of textual symbols. They represent uppercase and lowercase letters, the numbers 0 to 9, special symbols, and control characters (White, 2009).
