SQL_ASCII encoding

P: n/a
CSN
What exactly is the "SQL_ASCII" encoding for
databases? Is it like Unicode, UTF-8, ISO_8859_x, ...?
In what cases wouldn't you want to use it?

We interpret it pretty much as "we don't know the encoding". We store
what the client sends and then regurgitate it, without any encoding
conversion in either direction. Internal operations only understand
7-bit-ASCII characters in this mode.
