Zint: Manual

A. Character Encoding

This section is intended as a quick reference to the character sets used by Zint. All symbologies use standard ASCII input as shown in section A.1, but some support extended character support as shown in the subsequent section.

A.1 ASCII Standard

The ubiquitous ASCII standard is well known to most computer users. It's reproduced here for reference.
