Definition of String

By

Definition: C++ (in the STL) and C# both support a String class. This allows manipulation of text strings "Like this".

C doesn't support strings directly but can use arrays of type char as if they were strings.

The last character in a C type string is a '0'. This is appended, so the word "David" is actually six chars long.
