A byte is a collection of 8 bits, and thus is capable of representing 28 256
different values. Because that is sufficient for expressing many ranges of data,
including every character on a keyboard, the byte is a more practical unit of
Representing Characters and Strings Unlike integers and real values, characters
have no natural correspondence to binary numbers.Thus, computer scientists
must devise arbitrary systems for representing characters as bit patterns.
For example, other useful methods allow programmers to access and manipulate
individual components of a string. Such components are identifiable via indices,
or numbers that correspond to the order in which individual characters occur in ...
