Two little CLI commands which can be used for displaying the ASCII code of
a particular character, or vice versa.

The commands are equivalent to the ASC() and CHR$() functions that you'd
normally find in Basic, except that you don't need to waste memory loading
a Basic interpreter to use them! (And, of course, you can enter multiple
arguments - something else you can't do in Basic)

Anyway, here are the two commands:

  Ascii - Convert characters into ASCII codes
  -------------------------------------------

  Usage: Ascii <char1> <char2> <etc>

  Example: Ascii t e s t
    ASCII code of "t" is 116 ($74)
    ASCII code of "e" is 101 ($65)
    ASCII code of "s" is 115 ($73)
    ASCII code of "t" is 116 ($74)


  Chr$ - Convert ASCII codes into characters
  ------------------------------------------

  Usage: Chr$ <ascii1> <ascii2> <etc>

  Example: Chr$ $74 $65 $73 $74
    ASCII 116 ($74) is "t"
    ASCII 101 ($65) is "e"
    ASCII 115 ($73) is "s"
    ASCII 116 ($74) is "t"

  (You can enter the ASCII codes in either decimal or hex)


They're probably mainly of use to programmers. I know that *I* often find
them useful anyway!
