FAQ: Q: What is BCD? A: BCD stands for Binary Coded Decimal. It is a way of representing decimal numbers using a binary code.

Q: Why would I need to convert ASCII to BCD? A: BCD is commonly used in digital systems for encoding decimal numbers. Converting ASCII to BCD may be necessary for interfacing ASCII-based systems with BCD-based systems.

Q: Is there a limit to the length of ASCII text I can convert? A: The tool should be able to handle reasonably long ASCII texts, but extremely large inputs may result in performance issues.

Q: Can I use special characters in the ASCII input? A: The tool is designed to handle standard ASCII characters (0-127). Special characters outside this range may not be converted accurately.
