Literal,in programming, a value written exactly as it's meant to be interpreted.
A character literal is expressed as a character or an escape sequence, enclosed in ASCII single quotes.
A string literal consists of zero or more characters enclosed in double quotes.

A literal denotes a constant value, that is, the value a literal represents remains unchanged in the program. Literals represent numerical (integer or floating-point), character, boolean or string values. In addition, there is the literal null that represents the null reference.


2000 0 -7

3.14 -3.14 .5 0.5

'a' 'A' '0' ':' '-' ')'

true false

"abba" "3.14" "for" "a piece of the action"
