(1) A set of graphic characters and their code point assignments. The set may contain fewer characters than the total number of possible characters: some code points may be unassigned. IBM. (2) A coded set whose elements are single characters; for example, all characters of an alphabet. .
ISO] A set of unambiguous rules that establish a character set and the one-to-one relationship between the characters of the set and their coded representations. synonymous with code.
a character repertoire plus an encoding that provides a bijective mapping between each character in the set and a number (typically a non-negative integer) that serves as the character representation
a character set where each character has been assigned a unique number
a mapping between a set of abstract characters and a set of integers
an assignment of a unique number to each character in a Character Repertoire
a set of characters for which a unique number has been assigned to each character
a set of characters together with a mapping from integer codes --- known as codepoints --- to characters
a set of rules that unambiguously and completely determines which sequence of characters, if any, is represented by each possible sequence of n-bit bytes for a certain value of n
A mapping from a set of abstract character s to a set of non-negative integers.
an unambigious mapping of the items of a character set to specific numeric code values; for example, ASCII maps the uppercase and lowercase letters A-Z, digits, symbols, etc. to specific code values.
A function whose domain is a subset of the integers and whose range is a character repertoire. That is, for some set of integers (usually of the form {0, 1, 2, ..., N} ), a coded character set and an integer in that set determine a character. Conversely, a character and a coded character set determine the character's code position (or, in rare cases, a few code positions).
A mapping of a character repertoire onto a code set, such that each character from the character repertoire is represented by a number (bit combination) in the code set.
