Case Sensitivity?
« on: July 10, 2018, 10:20:08 pm »
Dear FreePascal Community:
     Are the statements in the FreePascal compiler case sensitive?  All along, I have been using capital letters for reserved words (such as WRITELN).  I have noticed in the Dev-Orwell C++ compiler that the reserved words MUST be in lower case letters.  Thank you. :)

sO, NoNOOno!
inline variables like in D10.3 are a bit like Brexit: if you are given the wrong information it sounds like a good idea. Every kid loves candy, but it makes you fat and your teeth will disappear.
