I was primarily thinking of readability and comprehension, not representation.
Readability can't be without representation.

If you are receiving a support request or error report, and all supporting documentation uses characters that make no sense to you, you may have great difficulties in interpreting the bug report or error request.
No, I mail the provider of said and burn them for not documenting.

And: The alternative to UTF-16 (which is hardly used at all in files) is UTF-8, not ASCII.
That's not an alternative. One is a more limited version of wheel then the other.

Member 7989122 wrote:
But you must of course be prepared for 8859
No, in general I'm not; the specs specify what I should support, and outdated isn't supported.

Member 7989122 wrote:
Then we are talking about not reading a text representation as as text file, but using an interpreter program to present the information. Just as you would do with a binary format file.
Bin nor text need an interpreter.

Member 7989122 wrote:
I am not getting this "ASCII in binary". Lots of *nix files with binary data use Unix epoch to store date and time.
ASCII is a text-representation that is stored as bits. Unix epoch has nothing to do with any discussion of text-formats.

Did you ever roll snowballs to make a snowman when you were a kid?
No. What's the use of that?

Member 7989122 wrote:
One major point is that binary data file formats, as opposed to a character representation, is underestimated
A representation is not a format. They're all stored as bytes. Google for an ASCII-table, it shows what bytes are used for the character.

Member 7989122 wrote:
I am surprised that you haven't discovered that point.
I deduce you're not asking a question, but trying to make a point. Mixing text-encodings and date-encodings, trying to prove that not human readable binary is somehow superiour.

You fail to give a simple example to prove so, and your explanation isn't helping me.
