Unlike most other communication protocols, which are dedicated to work over a narrow set of restrictions, ASCII itself has no such limitation. Messages can come in many different formats, lengths, and syntaxes. Some devices may have cryptic alpha/numeric sequences and others might resemble a form or a columnar report.
