The two different kind of quotation marks have different meanings in different programming languages. For instance, in some languages, double quote marks mean "the characters inside these marks are a character string and should be terminated with an extra (null) character," while the single quote marks mean "the one character inside these is to be treated as a single byte, not a string." In different languages there may also be ways of using one or the other of these marks, followed by the letter B or X, to indicate that the characters inside the quotes should be interpreted as a binary or hexadecimal numeral.
