The binary number system (aka base 2) represents values using two symbols, typically 0 and 1. Computers call these bits. A bit is either off (0) or on (1). When arranged in sets of 8 bits (1 byte) 256 values can be represented (0-255).
Convert Binary to Text
Check out this nice web app that lets you code in and decode from the binary number system to plain English.
Using an ASCII chart, these values can be mapped to characters and text can be stored. It’s not magic, it’s just math.
Do note that this application only encodes and decodes 8-bit ASCII text and is for entertainment purposes only.
