About wide character and multiple byte character

Hello everyone,


In my mind, wide character means in the encoding scheme, each character is encoded with the same number of bytes (compared with encoding technology which uses various number of bytes to encode a character). I have also made some references that it seems that wide character is the same as unicode (both are using 4 bytes to encode a character). Is that correct?

There is also a term called multiple byte character. What does it mean -- the same as wide character? Does it has any relationship with UTF-8 encoding (since UTF-8 also uses multiple bytes to encode a character)?


thanks in advance,
George

This isn't my area of expertise, but I believe so.

(Moved from C programming to Programming Tools, as this isn't specific to the C langauge.)
