Meaning of ASCIIBETICAL ORDER

 
Computing Dictionary
 
 Definition: 

/as'kee-be'-t*-kl or'dr/ Used to indicate that data is sorted in ascii collated order rather than alphabetical order. The main difference is that, in ASCII, all the upper case letters come before any of the lower case letters so, e.g., "Z" comes before "a".
