Re: How to use GIOChannel to write binary data

In general, the type name "char" is mostly misleading and
counter-productive these days. People new to C should get used to just
thinking "byte" when they see "char", either by itself or as part of
some API name like "g_io_channel_write_chars". A "character" is a
completely different and much more complex thing than a "char".
