BCDIC
BCD ("Binary-Coded Decimal"), also called alphanumeric BCD, alphameric BCD, BCD Interchange Code,[1] or BCDIC,[1] is a family of representations of numerals, uppercase Latin letters, and some special and control characters as six-bit character codes. Unlike later encodings such as ASCII, BCD codes were not standardized. Different computer manufacturers, and even different product lines from the same manufacturer, often had their own variants, and sometimes included unique characters

Carriage Return
A carriage return, sometimes known as a cartridge return and often shortened to CR, <CR> or return, is a control character or mechanism used to reset a device's position to the beginning of a line of text. It is closely associated with the line feed and newline concepts, although it can be considered separately in its own right.Contents1 Typewriters 2 Computers 3 See also 4 ReferencesTypewriters[edit] Originally, the term "carriage return" referred to a mechanism or lever on a typewriter. For machines where the type element was fixed and the paper held in a moving carriage, this lever was operated after typing a line of text to cause the carriage to return to the far right so the type element would be aligned to the left side of the paper. The lever would also usually feed the paper to advance to the next line. Many electric typewriters such as IBM Electric or Underwood Electric made carriage return to be another key on the keyboard instead of a lever

Line Feed
Newline
Newline
(frequently called line ending, end of line (EOL), line feed, or line break) is a control character in a character encoding specification, like e.g. ASCII. It is used to signify the end of a line of text and the start of a new one. Text editors set this special character when pressing the Enter key. When displaying (or printing) a text file, this control character causes the text editor to show the following characters in a new line.Contents1 Wall of text 2 Representations in different character encoding specifications2.1 Unicode 2.2 Escape sequences 2.3 In programming languages3 Frequent issues3.1 Conversion utilities4 History 5 Reverse and partial line feeds 6 See also 7 References 8 External linksWall of text[edit] The concepts of line feed (LF) and carriage return (CR) are closely associated, and can be considered either separately or together

Compass
A compass is an instrument used for navigation and orientation that shows direction relative to the geographic cardinal directions (or points). Usually, a diagram called a compass rose shows the directions north, south, east, and west on the compass face as abbreviated initials. When the compass is used, the rose can be aligned with the corresponding geographic directions; for example, the "N" mark on the rose points northward. Compasses often display markings for angles in degrees in addition to (or sometimes instead of) the rose. North corresponds to 0°, and the angles increase clockwise, so east is 90° degrees, south is 180°, and west is 270°. These numbers allow the compass to show azimuths or bearings, which are commonly stated in this notation. Among the Four Great Inventions, the magnetic compass was first invented as a device for divination as early as the Chinese Han Dynasty (since c
