to declare and assign a value to a char variable:

char someChar = 'z';

to declare a char array with a specific size:

char someArray[5];

to assign a variable to an element of that array

someArray[2] = someChar;

to print the value of a char using printf:

printf("Im printing the letter z: %c. Im printing it again: %c", someChar, someChar);
