'ascii' takes a command line argument, recognizes in it any of the synonyms for an ASCII character and prints all the others. Synonyms include decimal, octal and hex numerical values, ASCII mnemonics, ISO code points and official names, HTML/SGML style entities, and slang names ranging from common to obscure. It is also a handy base converter for values in the range 0-255.
