I mean that 'char' is a numeric type in the integer family, i.e. a numeric
type for which operators |, &, ^, >>, <<, ++, and -- are defined, and (a +
b) - b always equals a in the absence of overflow.  Numeric types in the
integer family are collectively refered to as integers; 'int' is one
specific type in this family.
