3.1.1.1. ASCII TYPE

This is the default type and must be accepted by all FTP implementations. It is intended primarily for the transfer of text files, except when both hosts would find the EBCDIC type more convenient.

The sender converts the data from an internal character representation to the standard 8-bit NVT-ASCII representation (see the Telnet specification). The receiver will convert the data from the standard form to his own internal form.

In accordance with the NVT standard, the <CRLF> sequence should be used where necessary to denote the end of a line of text. (See the discussion of file structure at the end of the Section on Data Representation and Storage.)

Using the standard NVT-ASCII representation means that data must be interpreted as 8-bit bytes.

The Format parameter for ASCII and EBCDIC types is discussed below.
