Hi ALL

How do i type ASCII characters on Linux

One does not type ASCII characters with Linux.
One types characters with a keyboard.

When you type on a PC type computer, the keyboard sends
keystroke codes for each key, codes something like this:

keypress: A
keyrelease: A

If you hold down the key, the keyboard sends a stream
like this:

keypress: A
keypress: A
keypress: A
keyrelease: A

Inside the computer the BIOS (usually) translates these into
a bunch of ASCII characters. ASCII today is almost the universal
code for characters.

Every character you see in this e-mail is ASCII. Every character
in the e-mail you sent is ASCII.

I can explain it for you, but I can't understand it for you.
