in reply to FMTYEWTK about Characters vs Bytes
in thread What is the difference between sending bytes and characters over sockets?

indeed... but back to the original question...the socket does not care whether the program is treating your data as a bitvector or operating on the higher level representation of such,i.e. ascii or any other symbol/character set...

warning: munging binary data for extended periods may cause severe headaches and aggressive, anti-social behaviour when agitated

you are all a bunch of idiots...
