@orionwl I'm not specifically familiar with C & its intricacies but shouldn't the language define the concept of 'char' regardless of CPU architecture?

I know some assembly basics but only of simplified architectures so I don't have any knowledge on opcodes specifically recognizing a char type, so is that the case with current day architectures? Or is there something between C code and the assembly code it needs to compile to (i.e. the compiler), that depends on architecture specific behaviour?
