Maybe it is hard to understand,but I don't need the character or wchar_t
but for me the string represents a number...the number has nothing to do
with the character but signed char and unsigned char is the only
representation for 8bit numbers in c++...for that I don't cut anything
if the number does not exceeds the limits of a 8bit number...
