The full set of character codes used for encoding a particular language.
Refers to the range of letters, numbers and other characters that a font contains or that an input or output device can process.
The character set consists of all the characters that the symbology can encode. Some symbologies, such as Code 128, also include character subsets, where a few characters are used as subset flag characters, and the remaining characters can then be interpreted in a variety of ways, depending upon the subset currently indicated by the flag characters.
A set of numbers, letters, and special characters that have some design characteristic in common. For examples, the ASCII character set.
A character set is an unordered set of characters
A way of representing the writing system of a language on a computer. Computers only understand numbers, so a character set establishes a standard mapping between numbers and the glyphs of a language. A one-byte set has space for 256 characters which is sufficient for English and many Western languages, but East Asian languages such as Chinese need two-bytes to encode their thousands of characters.
the type of characters that the barcode can express. There are some character sets such as numerics-only, numerics and marks, numerics and alphabets and marks, including full- ASCII control code, variable according to the type of the barcode.
A finite set of different characters that is considered complete for a given purpose. [ISO 9735
The characters that are available to be encoded in a particular automatic identification technology.
The computer codes that represent the characters of a language. 8-bit (byte or octet) codes have dominated from the early days of computing, when memory and storage were at a premium. 16-bit codes are adequate to represent all the characters of human language. See double-byte character set (DBCS) and Unicode. The mapping of characters to codes is called encoding. The jargon "charset" implies the set of rules for mapping from a sequence of bytes/octets to a sequence of characters.
range of characters which a given computer accepts as valid for a specific code Return
The letters, numbers, and symbols that can be generated by pressing keys on a keyboard.
The complete set of characters from 1-255 for a single typeface.
A range of data characters (alpha, numeric and/or punctuation) that can be encoded into any given symbology. (2) Refers to the international characters and graphic symbols available within a given thermal printer model – Example: IBM® Code Page 850.
programming languages usually use no more than two type of character sets, the ASCII and the UNICODE ones. The first set is limited to 256 possibilities (control sequences included) whereas the latter has enough room for 65536 possibilities. The problem is that databases need to store characters avoiding excessive overhead and also, they need to pass them to clients that expect to display the correct image for each stored code representing a character. Not all code tables use the same numeric values for representing the same characters and also, some alphabets are totally different from others or have a bunch of special characters. So, it becomes important to define the character set according to the "code page" that the application will use. Interbase supports a default character set per database and an explicit character set for each char/varchar field. There's no character set available for all the engine. If not specified, the system default is NONE, that means characters are stored as they are and no translation is attempted between the server and the client.
a collection of character codes , which are numbers each of which corresponds to a character in the same alphabet
a collection of letters and symbols used in a writing system, eg
a collection of symbols, or glyphs

a set of alphabetic or other characters used to construct the words and other elementary units of a native language or computer language
a set of characters (duh)
a set of characters for a specific language (or languages)
a set of characters you would like to use
a set of graphic, textual symbols, each of which is mapped to a set of nonnegative integers
a set of symbols and encodings
a defined set of characters (letters, logograms, digits, etc.) that is used to construct words of a language; often used as synonym for coded character set.
Defines the binary values that are associated with the characters that make up a language. For example, you can use the ISO-8859-1 character set to encode most Western European languages.
A well-defined group of symbols typically used for the support of one or more languages. In a 'coded' character set, each character is assigned to a specific numbered slot within the whole set. A 'non-coded' character set is an unordered group of characters (see also character collection).
Emacs supports a number of character sets, each of which represents a particular alphabet or script. Chapter 20.
A defined set of characters. For example, the following character set appears in several code pages: 26 non-accented letters A through Z 26 non-accented letters a through z digits 0 through 9 . , : ; ? ( ) ' " / - _ (underscore)
An LJK/CDROM construct combining a Character Set, A1-Characters and D1-Characters for use with a particular Hierarchy.
A grouping of alphabetic, numeric, and other characters that have some relationship in common. For example, the standard ASCII character set includes letters, numbers, symbols, and control codes that make up the ASCII coding scheme.
A collection of elements that represent textual information for a specific language or group of languages. One language can be represented by more than one character set. A character set does not always imply a specific character encoding scheme. A character encoding scheme is the assignment of a character code to each character in a character set. In this manual, a character set usually does imply a specific character encoding scheme. Therefore, a character set is the same as an encoded character set in this manual.
A standard collection of characters. A character set may include letters, digits, punctuation, control codes, graphics, mathematical symbols, and other signs. Each character in the set is represented by a unique character code, which is a binary number used for storage and transmission.
A single font's characters, symbols, and numbers.
The characters, symbols, and numbers that make up one single font.
An ordered set of abstract symbols, used ti represent and exchange information, in which a paricular symbol is represented by its index.
There are tens of thousands of characters used in human writing systems. Unicode lists about 40'000 of these characters. On 8-bit PCs only 128 characters can be mapped to machine code, definitely not enough to handle all these characters. The Unicode characters are divided into sets of characters. A PC needs to be set up to use a particular set. Documents that are distributed over the internet need to specify in which character set they are written so that devices that receive them can render them correctly by first adapting to the specified character set.
Characters available for encodation in a particular bar code type. Not all bar code types can encode the entire ASCII character set.
Emacs supports a number of character sets, each of which represents a particular alphabet or script. See section Q. International Character Set Support.
A character that appears on your computer screen, which can be a number, letter or symbol, is the graphical interpretation of a number. For a computer to know what characters to display, it refers to a database that associates a single character with each number. This database is called a character set.
Those characters available for encodation in a particular automatic identification technology.
The set of symbols used to display data. Most of us are familiar with the ASCII character set, it's what you're looking at right now. FTS can show you your data in ASCII as well as EBCDIC or BAUDOT, two other character sets sometimes used in data communications.
All of the letters, numbers, punctuation marks, and special symbols in a typeface.
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.
The set of numeric codes used by a computer system to represent the characters (letters, numbers, punctuation, etc.) of a particular country or place. The most common character set in use today is ASCII (American Standard Code for Information Interchange). Many European countries use an extension of ASCII known as ISO-8859-1 (ISO Latin-1).
The set of characters that can be coded and/or printed by a particular machine.
A mapping of a set of characters to their numeric values. For example, Unicode is a 16-bit character set capable of encoding all known characters and used as a worldwide character-encoding standard.
A group of related characters. The Commodore 128 character set consists of: upper-case letters, lower-case letters and graphic characters.

The entire complement of alphanumeric and other symbols contained in a given font.
A collection of letters, numbers, and symbols used in a particular language.
A group of letters, numbers, and symbols that have some relationship in common. For example, the ASCII character set contains characters that make up the ASCII coding scheme.
A collection of characters in which a numeric code is assigned to each character so that it can be represented on a computer. Most traditional character sets contain characters from only one or two scripts.
A mapping of characters to their identifying numeric values. See also multibyte character set.
The characters (and their byte codes) available in an application program. The most common is the ASCII (or ANSI) set of 128 characters, in which CAPITAL LETTER A has the code 41 in hexadecimal, 065 decimal, and 01000001 binary. Various localized character sets are ISO 8859-1 or Latin-1, the most common encoding of characters for Western European languages. ISO 8859-1 through 8859-15 are 256 character sets. The first 128 characters are the same as ASCII, and the upper 128 encode Cyrillic, Hebrew, Arabic, etc. characters.
All characters contained in a font. A latin font has a standard character set composed of the capital and lower case letters, numerals and punctuation marks. Some character sets also include additional characters such as country-specific letters, currency symbols, ligatures, etc. PostScript Type 1 and TrueType fonts can include up to 256 characters, Unicode based fonts (e. g., OpenType) up to 65,536 characters.
An encoding scheme in which each character is represented by a different binary value. For example, ISO8859-1 is an extended Latin character set that supports more than 40 Western European languages.
In animation, a set that includes all of a character's attributes.
The total number of characters (alphabetic, numeric, symbols) that a certain bar code symbology can express. Some character sets can express numerics-only, numerics and symbols, numerics, alphabets and marks etc.
