The asciiq function performs ctcp dequote on the arguments and then converts the resulting sequence of characters into a word list of codepoints. Because EPIC only supports latin-1 at this time, all of the codepoints are 0 to 255 (strictly 1 byte per codepoint). If in the future epic supports UTF8 or something like that, codepoints greater than 255 might be returned.
You can use the chrq function to convert a word list of codepoints into a sequence of characters. The same caveats about encoding applies.
The asciiq function first appeared in EPIC4-1.1.8.
