A byte is eight bits, the size of one char. A kilobyte (KB) is 1024 bytes, while a megabyte (MB) is 1024 kilobytes, a gigabyte (GB) is 1024 megabytes, etc.

A byte is the minimum amount of memory allocatable. Even a bool is one byte (thus the benefits of BitVec).

  • In Source, byte is a typedef for unsigned char.
