A group of 8-bit glyphs. For example, the ISO-8859-1 (a.k.a. Latin-1) contain the regular latin chars for west european languages, ISO-8859-8 contain the hebrew chars, ISO-8859-5 have the cyrillic chars, etc. The concept is now obsolete due the advent of Unicode. Linux' base C library (libc) contain the technology to convert text from one charset to another and to/from Unicode.

a coded character set and encoding scheme
a combination of a defined set of character codes, and a scheme for encoding the characters into the codes
a mathematical set of characters
a method of mapping a sequence of octets to a sequence of abstract characters
