ISO/IEC 2022:1994 Preview
Information technology -- Character code structure and extension techniques
This standard was last reviewed and confirmed in 2006. Therefore this version remains current.
Cancels and replaces the third edition (1986). Specifies the structure of 8-bit codes and 7-bit codes which provide for the coding of character sets. The codes specified here are designed to be used for data that is processed sequentially in a forward direction. Use of these codes in strings of data which are processed in some other way, or which are included in data formatted for fixed-length record processing, may have undesirable results or may require additional special treatment to ensure correct interpretation.
