1 - About

There are two main groups of encoding schemes:

  • on Unix machines, the scheme is usually ASCII,
  • whereas the majority of mainframes use EBCDIC.

3 - Type

3.1 - ASCII

ASCII sorts as follows:

  • numbers
  • upper case characters (A-Z)
  • lower case characters (a-z)

3.2 - EBCDIC

EBCDIC sorts in the reverse order:

  • lower case characters (a-z)
  • upper case characters (A-Z)
  • numbers
