It is possible to know the CRS from an ascii file?

The information I have about it in the heading of the ascii file is the x and y corners:

xllcorner -10,000416206603 yllcorner 34,999583430181


Those are probably geographic coordinates, probably WGS84. Try it with http://projfinder.com/

    @artwork21 Many countries use a comma as a decimal separator instead of a period, including Tunisia (according to Wikipedia), which is where those coordinates could be if one assumes they are both positive (east and north). – Evil Genius May 19 '16 at 12:27
  • As a German I did not even notice that ;) – bugmenot123 May 19 '16 at 12:36
