    I am studying performance analysis and character instance gets brought up a lot. I am unclear to what this means. It also talks about functions of instance characteristics. Can someone elaborate?

    Hey Instinctlol.

    This is just a speculation but an instance would refer to the instantiation of a particular variable or a memory object if it is talking about the instances of a class which do include normal declaration of a variable (like an int, char, etc as well as dynamically allocated stuff like arrays).
