Hey java ppl
i have a slight problem .
Is the data range of char is 0-65536 or is it 0-65535
I ask this because every where it is written that range is 0-65536 but when i write this line
char c=65536 ;
it gives compile time error.
Please tell me what is going on
Regards denish

Hi denish,
0 to 2^16-1
0 to 65535
0 to 1111 1111 1111 1111
'\u0000' to '\uFFFF'
All of above are equivalent, since char is unsigned 2 byte integer.
 
You would be much easier to understand if you took that bucket off of your head. And that goes for the tiny ad too!
