Languages Focus: Case Sensitivity

Case sensitiviy in this case is referring to commands and variable names. For example, are "printf" and "PrintF" equivalent? Are fullname and FullName equivalent? When you create commands, operations, methods, or variables should you worry about case?

ASP Classic Case Sensitivity

ASP Classic is not case sensitive. My preference for all languages where case sensitivity does not matter is to use camel caps as in the first example above. Many developers coming from a case sensitive language prefer to use all lowercase.

Syntax Example:

You can use any of the following:

Response.Write "Hello"
response.write "Hello"
RESPONSE.WRITE "Hello"
REsponse.WritE "Hello"

Comment 1 of 1

The printf statement is not case sensitive .it will accept all the capital and all the small letters, it doesnt show any errors regarding them. I had read an top essay services article about the syntax in ASP classic, it is written that it‘s not case sensitive, we can use both the capital and small letters.
