A numerical code in a data file which represents a particular character in text.
The numeric code within an encoding method that is used to refer to a specific character. Character codes may be referred to by their octal, decimal, or hexadecimal values.
A code that assigns numerical values to characters, such as ASCII code. See ASCII.
The code representing a specific character in the computer. See also: ASCII, Code Page, Unicode.
a mapping from a set of abstract characters to a set of nonnegative (but not necessarily consecutive) integers - the abstract character made real to computers, if you will
a number that is used to represent a given character
a number which represents a specific character
a one-to-one mapping between a set of characters and the corresponding numbers to represent those characters
a sequence of bits that represents a character
A number that represents a particular character in a set, such as the ASCII character set.
A character code is a number that represents a specific character. The number depends on the encoding scheme. For example, the character code of the first character of the English uppercase alphabet is 0x41 in the ASCII encoding scheme, but it is 0xc1 in the EBCDIC encoding scheme. See also character.
In the context of modern computer operating systems, it is defined as a code with a meaning attached to it. For example, the decimal character code 97 represents the letter . In most operating systems today, characters codes are represented by an 8-bit unit of data known as a byte.
AN integer which uniquely identifies a character within a character repertoire.
A value representing a text character. Text is stored in memory as character codes. Each script systemâ€(tm)s ('KCHR') resource converts the virtual key codes generation by the keyboard or keypad into character codes; each script systemâ€(tm)s fonts convert the character codes into glyphs for display or printing.
An integer that is the numeric representation of a character. SICStus Prolog supports character codes in the range 0..2147483647 (i.e. 2^31-1). However, to be able to input or output character codes larger than 255, one needs to use the appropriate wide character external encoding.
