What is the excat relation between "char", "int", and "byte" ? how can we relate these three datatypes and UNICODE as well as ASCII ?

Is it true that different environments use diffrent character sets? Why ?......whats the character set used by Windows (XP/98/95/NT) ? How does knowledge of character set being used by the environment affects the application being developed to be executed in that environment....e.g ?


Thanks and Regards

Again, I wonder if you have a textbook. Most of the details for these questions is available in print or online. Is there some part of this information that you don't understand? If so, please ask a specific question about what you read and we will be happy to clarify.
