At the same time, in similar manner, the well-established 8 bit ASCII codes were abandoned as too limited for the display requirements of modern Windows-based word processors. Also, with the global software market being established by companies like Microsoft, there was a need to handle international character sets. As a result of all these effects, the 16 bit Unicode character code set was introduced with 7 bit ASCII as a subset. Fig. 9 Conversion of decimal numbers to binary by repeated division.

But the ability to store sequences of instructions in a ‘command file’ or ‘script’ is essential for serious practitioners, in order to save time, reduce errors and provide documentary evidence for the future.
