This fantastic chart comes from today's guest blogger, Liam McSherry.

In Liam's words...

=============================

If anyone wants to know how to convert text into a series of binary digits, I quickly made this little graphic.

Note that this sort of system applies to all radices as a way of converting to them, with the divisor "2" changed to the value of the radix.

This is on the topic of the blog article, Text to Binary Converter - Small Basic Featured Program

Cool.

Jacob, make sure you check out Amir's Text to Binary Converter if you haven't yet: blogs.msdn.com/…/text-to-binary-converter-small-basic-featured-program.aspx

This conversation originated from this Small Basic forums thread: social.msdn.microsoft.com/…/9d6f6e01-84e7-42af-bd2f-3818929102d8

And how exactly does 1 divided by 2 have a remainder of 0?

@confused

65 divided by 2 is 32 with a remainder of 1, so 32 times 2 plus 1 equals 65 and 1 divided by 2 is 0 with a remainder of 1 because you multiply 0 by 2 plus 1 you get 1

How did you get the letters into numbers?

this is cool. I get everything perfectly.

Thanks for explaining, Possible Explanation! =^)

If anyone is confused, like Confused and Matthew, please ask in the Small Basic forum: social.msdn.microsoft.com/…/threads

Thanks!

why does the ABCD has the decimal of 65,66,67 and 68?

How did you get the letters into numbers?

Unknown/Joseph, those are the ASCII values.

65 = A

66 = B

67 = C

68 = D

And that's also the answer to Matthew's question earlier. Thanks!

Great, helped in understanding this a lot, easily

Extremely simplified. God bless U.

how did you get letter into binary

how to compute character into ASCII Value?

I wanted to learn how to convert the text into the binary and just came across this blog. After visiting this blog, I can perform the calculation and find out the answer by my own. Earlier, I have used binarytranslator to find out the correct answer. Thank you very much for sharing such a useful information. Looking forward to read such informative blogs in the future.
