    Well I'm assuming your talking about methods when you talk about voids. A 'Void' is a method where you don't return anything. A char method would return a char value.

    Now if you want to talk about them as variables, a char like you said holds character values (like letters, symbols, or numbers). An int can only hold numerical values. A bool can only have a true or false value. A double holds numerical values with decimals (like 1.2 or something). A void is simply something that isn't there, hence the name.

    void is nothing, void == null.

    void variables don't exist, they don't hold anything.

    char variable; //legal

    void function()
    {
    //doesnt return
    }

    }

    If I learned well, char variable can only hold 1 letter, but I didn't know that "void" thingy
