Please, locate the file (maybe ascii.x.gz) then find the package name

rpm -qf /path/file

Doesn't seem to be there.

The idea is to try on a machine where "man ascii" works. Probably TW.
man ascii

ASCII(7)

NAME
ascii - ASCII character set encoded in octal, decimal, and hexadecimal

DESCRIPTION
ASCII is the American Standard Code for Information Interchange.
It is a 7-bit code. Many 8-bit codes (e.g., ISO
8859-1) contain ASCII as their lower half. The international
counterpart of ASCII is known as ISO 646-IRV.

The following table contains the 128 ASCII characters.

C program '\X' escapes are noted.

Oct Dec Hex Char Oct Dec Hex Char
────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────
000 0 00 NUL '\0' (null character) 100 64 40 @

and the rest. This on TW.
