(1) A letter, digit, or other symbol that is used to represent data. (2) A sequence of one or more bytes representing a single graphic symbol or control code. This term corresponds to the ISO C standard term multibyte character, where a single-byte character is a special case of the multibyte character. Unlike the usage in the ISO C standard, character here has no necessary relationship with storage space, and byte is used when storage space is discussed. X/Open, . See multibyte character.
The minimal unit of encoding for text files. A character typically corresponds to a single graphic sign, like a letter of the alphabet or a punctuation mark.
Having letters, numbers, or special characters such as @, -, $ and spaces.

A character is a Platonic ideal reified into at least one glyph. For example the letter "s" is a character which is reified into several different glyphs: "S", "s", "", long-s, etc. Note that these glyphs can look fairly different from each other, however although the glyph for an integral sign might be the same as the long-s glyph, these are in fact different characters.
character code The word character is used differently in different contexts. In the context of modern computer operating systems, it is often defined as a code with a meaning attached to it. For example, the decimal character code 97 represents the letter “a”. In most operating systems today, character codes are represented by an 8-bit unit of data known as a byte. Also see character encoding, glyph, keyboard layout.

Every of them is referable to a particular set of aspects well identifiable, isolable and definable been of a certain mind's state in a considered event. The character allows to distinguish and classify, although in a conventional and arbitrary way, an abmotion's typology with respect to an other. In spite of the fact that our intuition of the characters is approximate, vague and certainly partial, it is however possible temporarily identifying five ones, enough defined, which are appointed with the greek letters alpha, beta, gamma, delta and epsilon. They are descriptively reported to five analogic categories of the aither which have been respectively called: aesthetics, ethics, gnoresis, cairéa and dhianasis.
