What is the advantage of choosing ASCII encoding over UTF-8?
@Pacerier, if you don't need encoding above 127, choosing ASCII may be worth when you use some API to encode/decode, because UTF needs additional bit verification to consider additional bytes as the same character, it can takes additional computation rather than pure ASCII which just read 8 bits without verification. But I only recommend you to use ASCII if you really need a high level of optimization in large (big large) computation and you know what you're doing in that optimization. If not, just use UTF-8.
