ASCII Character Set

ANSI 2.2.1   Members of source and execution character sets

The source character set is the set of legal characters that can appear in source files. For Microsoft C, the source character set is the standard ASCII character set.

Note Note

Warning   Because keyboard and console drivers can remap the character set, programs intended for international distribution should check the Country/Region code.
