In other words, utterly useless. I won't rant on the criminal stupidity of using ASCII after Y2K, or wonder why anglophones keep on doing this mistake over and over and over, I'll just note that it would have been so very easy to make it so very much better: ask about encoding of source text, convert to and store the text internally as unicode and make it possible to input what the vowels are... *sigh* t.
