Case sensitivity


ScriptEase is case sensitive. A variable named "testvar" is a different variable than one named "TestVar", and both of them can exist in a script at the same time. Thus, the following code fragment defines two separate variables:


var testvar = 5

var TestVar = "five"


All identifiers in ScriptEase are case sensitive. For example, to display the word "dog" on the screen, the Screen.write() method could be used: Screen.write("dog"). But, if the capitalization is changed to something like, Screen.Write("dog"), then the ScriptEase interpreter generates an error message. Control statements and preprocessor directives are also case sensitive. For example, the statement while is valid, but the word While is not. The directive #if works, but the letters #IF fail.
