Character constants represent single ASCII characters, and are entered and printed according to C syntax:
'a' 'b' 'c' '\n' '\0'
Unlike C, muf character constants are _not_ integers: they are a separate type, distinct from both integers and strings.
Characters compare by ASCII collating order.
Note: This syntax for character constants is inconsistent with the CommonLisp standard, but I find the CommonLisp character-constant syntax too painfully ugly to inflict on muf programmers.
