‘unsigned char’ declaration, read and print in c language

By: IncludeHelp On 20 DEC 2016

unsigned char is a character data type with larger range of the value than signed char.

Whenever we work with positive value between the range of 0 to 255, we can use unsigned char instead of short, int type of data type.


unsigned char variable_name;
unsigned char age;

Consider the program to read and print the unsigned char value in C

#include <stdio.h>

int main()
	unsigned char age;
	printf("Enter age: ");
	printf("Input age is: %d\n",age);
	return 0;


Enter age: 75 
Input age is: 75
