Data in Programming
Data is information used by your game. The name or hit points of a game character is data that must be stored and changed during the course of your game.
A data type is a specific kind of data used by a computer language. The reason there are data types is because there are different ways of dealing with different kinds of data. Common data types include strings, integers, and real numbers.
A data structure is like a container that holds data while your game is running. Common data structures include variables, arrays, and types.
