I just started to wonder, what character set is used by c?

My first guess is pure ASCII.
If its not ASCII, what codepage gcc use?

Can i compile file in utf8, or utf16, if its not just ASCII?



ive noticed that i can put certain characters as variable names, this tell much.
Actually what characters can make name in c?

char is ASCII, new specs have brought support for new types and new character sets. I haven't looked into it that much.

A-z + _ for the first letter and A-z + _ + 1-9 for the rest.
