(1) A 1-byte code representing 1 of 256 possible characters. (2) An identifier in an alert description that represents a short unit of text. The code point is replaced with the text by an alert display program.
a) [IBM] A unique bit pattern defined in a code. Depending on the code, a code point can be 7-bits, 8-bits, 16-bits, or other. Code points are assigned graphic characters in a code page. b) Location in a coding scheme. There are several notations of this position. In ISO the position is defined by its row/column in the code table (e.g. 5/14). In the IBM environment the hexadecimal representation of the location is prefered (e.g. X'5E').
See Character Code.
an integer value associated with a character in a coded character set
a number that uniquely identifies one of the many characters Unicode defines
a unique identification number that is assigned to each character in the Unicode character set
a unique identifier for a glyph, e
The integer associated with an abstract character in a coded character set.
a numerical index (or position) in an encoding table that is used for encoding characters; a specific binary value that encodes a specific character of a coded character set; for example, code point '41'x (65 decimal) encodes uppercase A in ASCII.
the technical name for the numerical value associated with a character. In Unicode, valid codepoints go from 0 to 0x10FFFF inclusive. In D, a codepoint can only be stored in a dchar.
The numeric representation of a character in a character set. For example, the code point of in the ASCII character set is 0x41. The code point of a character is also called the encoded value of a character. See also Unicode code point.
Numeric value in Unicode encoding or in a code page; corresponds to a character. In the Western European code page, 132 is the code point for the character Ã¤; however, in another code page, the code point 132 might correspond to a different character.
In CDRA, a unique bit pattern that represents a character in a code page.
