To obtain the above objectives we have transformed the contents of the database records into to ASCII code
and then applied the M-T transform on the ASCII code
matrix to calculate the matrix of coded data.
Thus, when we press the enter key to add a new line, ASCII codes
ten (line feed) and thirteen (carriage return) are both added to the file.
For convenience of discussion and data manipulation, we shift each of the ASCII codes
by 48 (ASCII code
for '0') so that the character '0' is represented by code 0, '1' by 1 and so on.
In one case, for example, a program that would require 241,000 characters in ASCII code
can now be written in 848 macro code characters.
Since Chi Writer files are saved in ASCII code
with embedded control sequences there is limited compatibility with files prepared by other word processors.
