Some basic data types are described in the section on variables and expressions. These simple types such as integers, floats and characters are sometimes called primitive types because they just contain a single value.

Other types, such as strings and arrays, are called data structures because they store multiple data elements (they are also sometimes called compound types because they are made up of parts). A text string is made up of individual characters, and an array is made up of separate elements. Some common data structures are described in this section.
